ALL 380 ENGLISH Premier League games will be televised live by NBC and its networks next season as part of a multi-year contract, with current ITV analyst Lee Dixon one of the pundits on board.

The move means the interesting relationship Dixon has built up with ITV colleague Roy Keane could be about to end.

The telecasts begin on 17 August and will be carried on NBC, NBC Sports Network, Telemundo, Mun2 and various digital outlets.

NBC is scheduled to air 20 games, with 154 on NBC Sports Network; 76 of the telecasts will be in Spanish on Telemundo or Mun2; and 22 will be shown on other NBC Sports Group channels.

Arlo White, who calls MLS games on NBCSN, will handle play by play from England. Former Premier League players Dixon and Graeme Le Saux will handle analysis and ex-England national team star Gary Lineker will be a special contributor.
