Man City vs Liverpool LIVE stream: NBC Sports unveil Tactical Cam

High Sideline Camera Shows All 22 players on the Pitch at the Same Time on NBC Sports Live Extra; Coverage Begins at 2 p.m. ET with Premier League Live; Tim Howard in On-Site Studio at Manchester City-Liverpool

NBC Sports Digital formally debuts its "Tactical Cam" during today’s highly-anticipated Liverpool at Manchester City match at 3p.m. ET. The "Tactical Cam" is a high sideline camera meant to show all 22 players on the pitch at the same time, enabling fans to see formations and evaluate each team's attacking and defending tactics as the game progresses.

NBC Sports Group’s Premier League lead play-by-play announcer Arlo White calls the match, joined by Graeme Le Saux at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.

The match is preceded by Premier League Live at 2 p.m. ET when Tim Howard makes his ’14-15 broadcast debut joining Lee Dixon and ITV Sport’s Matt Smith for a live on-site studio appearance. Rebecca Lowe hosts Premier League Live joined by former Premier League footballer Robbie Mustoe, and former Jamaican National Team player Robbie Earle.

The "Tactical Cam" will be available in both the NBC Sports Live Extra desktop and mobile & tablet presentations of the game. This new second screen application can be viewed in a Picture-in-Picture presentation on desktop where the user has the option of popping up the "Tactical Cam" in the main screen while following the main coverage in a smaller viewing window. On a mobile device or tablet, "Tactical Cam" can be viewed as a separate stream to complement the traditional broadcast view.

"The 'Tactical Cam' is our latest attempt to give U.S.-based fans of the Premier League the best and most comprehensive coverage available anywhere," said Tom Seeley, Vice President, Editorial, NBC Sports Digital. "After making every game available to fans in the U.S. for the first time last season, we're hoping that additions like ‘Tactical Cam’ will give fans even more to enjoy every weekend."

Additional second screen applications within NBC Sports Live Extra Premier League coverage includes a state-of-the-art video player that features HD video, in-game DVR capability, social media commentary as well as live, statistical data feeds from each game related to the teams and players.

NBC conducted a limited test of the “Tactical Cam” during last Monday’s Burnley-Chelsea game but today’s match will feature a full product rollout over both desktop and mobile.

NBC Sports Group will once again make all 380 games from the Premier League available in the United States on the networks of NBCUniversal, on the Premier League Extra Time bonus TV package, and streamed live on NBC Sports Live Extra. Every MVPD has the option to carry every Premier League match on live television and via live streaming at no additional cost to consumers.
