Yes, can't even find the games through the recent tactic of searching for the team name under "top leagues", where neither Sunderland nor WBA show up as premier league teams (but Norwich City and Bristol City do...).

From the Comcast Corporate Website: http://corporate.comcast.com/news-information/news-feed/nbc-sports-group-agrees-to-6-year-extension-to-remain-the-exclusive-u-s-home-of-the-premier-league
"Premier League viewership on NBC and NBCSN averaged a record 479,000 viewers last season — up 9 percent from the record NBC Sports Group set during its debut covering the Premier League in 2013-14 (438,000 viewers). In addition, viewers consumed a record total of 317 million minutes of live Premier League action via NBC Sports Live Extra during the 2014-15 season – up 22 percent from the prior season."
Comcast acknowledges there is a huge demand for this coverage. Every other provider has got it right (or at least much much better than what Comcast has delivered). Comcast has got to do better at making it available to their customers. For goodness sakes they have the Paralympics (no offense to the phenomenal Paralympians) as a featured sport with the Premier League (again, THEIR PRODUCT!!) nowhere to be seen on the OnDemand Sports menu. It baffles the mind.

The only way to have a good soccer experience is to switch to DirecTV. Just look back at some of the comments of those customers who have switched and have come back to gloat about how much better their experience is with DirecTV.
Comcast clearly doesn't care about soccer, or they wouldn't make you pay extra to watch La Liga in STANDARD DEF. EVERY OTHER cable/satellite provider shows ALL the premier league games live; even better, they are DVR'able, meaning you don't have to be glued to your TV at 10:00am to be able to watch the games not shown on NBCSN (that is to say, IF Comcast has decided to broadcast the Extra Time games that week). Likewise with Champions League: Comcast offers FS1 only; no FS2, no YES. Much like their EPL coverage, DirecTV offers ALL of the champions league games on specific channels set up just for those games, again DVR'able. Thanks to Comcast, I have to pay an additional $150 for a yearly subscription to FoxSoccer2Go so that I can stream the Champions League games on my computer. The only benefit of having a Comcast subscription is that it allows me to login on my computer to watch the Premier League on the computer.
Comcast service and treatment of their customers is a DISGRACE. If I were a Comcast employee, I would be ASHAMED to work for this awful awful company. Comcast Tony, don't you get tired of having to apologize to the hundreds of irate soccer fans on this forum EVERY WEEK for the past 3 years?!
