FA Cup set to be broadcast exclusively on FTA TV

From today's Times

The FA Cup is set to be broadcast exclusively on free-to-air television for an extended period for the first time since the late 1980s, with ITV close to joining the BBC as rights holders.

ITV is close to an agreement with the FA over a four-year package from the start of the 2021-22 season.

In March the BBC won the rights to broadcast up to 18 live FA Cup matches a season, in addition to TV and online highlights, with ITV set to gain a larger package of up to 30 games as the senior partner. Under the terms of the new deal, it will share coverage of the FA Cup for the first time since 1988.

While the contract has yet to be signed it is believed that it contains provision for the BBC and ITV to share live coverage of the final, as they did from 1955 until 1988. The package for which ITV is understood to have bid successfully is held by BT Sport, which has shared the rights with the BBC since 2014. An announcement of the deal is expected in the next few weeks.

But according to a few very wise sages on here all live football on Linear TV was set to disappear and get snapped up by the streaming giants....

Good News, hope they cover all the Fa Cup rounds, including Preliminary and qualifying. It all starts early August for some teams...

Excellent news for those who don't have PTV subscriptions.

In February, UEFA said that they were going into the business of streaming games themselves.
