PREMIER LEAGUE SEASON OFF TO RECORD START ON NETWORKS OF NBCUNIVERSAL

Four matches on NBC, NBCSN & USA Network Combine for 2.02 Overnight Rating - Best Ever in U.S. for Premier League Opening Saturday

STAMFORD, Conn. - August 9, 2015 - The 2015-16 Premier League season kicked off yesterday with an exciting day of matches that resulted in the best-ever overnight ratings in the U.S. for the league's opening Saturday.

With four matches on the networks of NBCUniversal -- two on NBCSN, one on NBC, and one on USA Network in its newly-added Premier League telecast window - the combined Saturday overnight rating of 2.02 is the best-ever for a Premier League opening Saturday in the U.S. The combined 2.02 overnight is up 43% from the prior record set last August (1.41 for three matches across NBCSN and NBC).

In addition:

· The 12:30 p.m. ET match on NBC - a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge between champions Chelsea and Swansea City - averaged a .93 overnight to rank as the best Saturday opener ever and topped last season's NBC opener (Arsenal/Crystal Palace) by 27%.

· The 7:45 a.m. ET match on NBCSN - Manchester United's 1-0 victory over Tottenham in the Premier League's opening match of the season - posted NBCSN's best-ever overnight rating in the early Saturday window (.49).

Following is a look at the results of yesterday's four matches on the networks of NBCUniversal:

Time Match Network

7:45 a.m. Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham NBCSN, NBC UNIVERSO

10 a.m. Bournemouth 0-1 Aston Villa NBCSN

10 a.m. Everton 2-2 Watford USA
