2013-14 English Premier League TV Plans September 21 & 22

CNBC will join the list of networks to have aired English Premier League games this week on Sunday morning. One would have to wonder why they don't move one of the Extra Time games to CNBC on a regular basis on Saturday, but they currently don't. This will also be the first week NBC doesn't have a game live on TV, with NBCSN taking the 12:30 p.m. slot instead. Here's your English Premier plans for this weekend.


Arsenal Face Stoke City in Debut of Premier League on CNBC Sunday at 8:30 a.m. ET
