You a big soccer fan??

Then good news! NBC has secured a $250 million, three-year deal with the English Premier League!

That means you get to watch the world's most popular soccer league on NBC.

They're taking coverage away from Fox and ESPN, so you only have to go to one channel now for all your soccer.

NBC Sports Group chairman said:

"The Barclays Premier League is the pre-eminent soccer league in the world, and is on the cusp of exponential popularity growth here in the U.S."

After the poo storm of negative publicity surrounding NBC's tape delayed coverage of the Olympics, they will be showing all the soccer games live.

They will show six live games a week! The rest will be streamed live online.

Nice grab, NBC.
