You’re probably wondering, what is Premier League Extra Time?
Basically it’s a bonus package of overflow television channels available at no extra cost to those who have NBC Sports Network as part of their television package. There usually is a plethora of games at 10 a.m. ET following a single early game (usually at 7:45 a.m. ET) , and a single late game (usually at 12:30 p.m. ET). That means there are more games than channels to play them, hence the overflow pacakge.
