NBC To Broadcast Britsh Soccer League

Big-time soccer finally has a major American television contract, but it's not the LA Galaxy or Chicago Fire. Barclays Premier League Football, perhaps the most popular sports league in the rest of the world, includes Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and West Ham. Host Scott Simon talks with Sports Business Journal's John Ourand about why NBC Sports Network is airing British football.

sorry to be pedantic, but there is no 'British Soccer League'. Britain consists of four different countries, each of which has it's own football league. NBC will be broadcasting the English Premier League. thanks.
