[SOCCER ON THE AIR] NBCUniversal's English-language networks recorded a 1.56 combined metered market rating for its “Championship Sunday” EPL programming.

The combined 1.56 metered market rating is up 79% from the final day of the 2011-12 Premier League season on ESPN2, FX, Fox Soccer, Speed, and Fuel. On the final Sunday of the 2012-13 season, only two Premier League games aired on rated networks (ESPN2 and FOX Soccer).

The coverage featured all 10 Premier League matches presented live simultaneously on 10 different NBCUniversal television networks on the season’s final day. In addition, Spanish-language networks Telemundo and mun2 each televised one match.

Sunday's matches included Manchester City's 2-0 victory over West Ham United on NBC that gave it its second Premier League title in three seasons. Liverpool secured second place with a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Newcastle on NBCSN.
