With the start of the season less than 10 days away, NBC Sports Group announced their channel assignments for the first three weeks of the upcoming English Premier League season.

NBC has decided to place games featuring Manchester United, Liverpool, and U.S. Men’s National Team forward Jozy Altidore’s Sunderland on their national TV channel for games kicking off at 12:30 p.m. In addition to the three games that NBC will televise, NBC Sports Network will air 14 other games in the first three weeks, featuring huge encounters like Manchester United vs. Chelsea in Week 2 and Arsenal vs. Tottenham in Week 3.

All matches that aren’t on live television will be shown free-of-charge to NBC Sports Network customers online through NBC Sports Extra. In addition, six matches will be televised on Spanish television via Telemundo and Mun2.

Arlo White, NBC Sports’ lead play-by-play voice of the English Premier League, will broadcast each of the NBC matches alongside Arsenal legend Lee Dixon, while White will partner with Graeme Le Saux to call two Sunday matches and one Monday match in the opening three weeks.

Here’s a closer look at the opening EPL schedule on NBC’s family of networks:
