Will definately confirm who has first choice for this round.


I am pretty sure the BBC have first pick for every round, it's only the replays where BT have alternate first picks.

That’s correct - BBC have first pick in every round, BT have second, fifth and six pick. Third and fourth picks alternate round by round, as does first pick of replays in third and fourth rounds.


(Replays have now been abolished from the fifth round onwards and with the winter break coming in next season the fifth round will move to midweek.)

The deal does seem to have changed this year with the BBC getting two games and BT four games in the third round, rather than three each.

Fifth going to midweek is a bit of a hit for broadcasters - currently they have 6-8 slots they can schedule games in but that effectively goes down to 2-3. They would have to show some games head to head, unless they go the Champions League route and have 6/8pm kick-offs.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

There was only one occasion where the Beeb got three games in the third round, last season. Before that it was always two - and BT had three. There's certainly been a change but there would clearly have to be because, as mentioned, there are now no replays after the fourth round so the broadcasters have to show more matches in earlier rounds, hence why BT now have four in the third round and there's now a sixth pick.

There also used to be the chance for broadcasters to get extra games the following season if there was only one, or no, replay in any given round so they couldn't show one.

The whole contract is a bit mysterious, but one thing is absolutely for certain and that's the Beeb always have first pick in every round.

Premier Sports' approach to the Scottish Cup appears to have been to go to Sunset+Vine and ask them to do exactly what they've been doing for BT Sport:

That's why, as I keep saying, I won't accept streaming as a replacement for TV until 50/60hz content being presented as such becomes standard. Some content, like sport, really is awful when cut down to 24/25/30.

I did use the Playstation Vue when I was at a friend's in the US last year, and that actually was full 60hz streaming.

And to Southampton fans (replay victory permitting) heading north to Accrington for a 12.30 Saturday lunchtime kick off.

Not as bad as a Sky Sports lunchtime kick off away to Sunderland a few seasons back, but..
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

Leinster vs Toulouse from the RDS on Channel 4 today has Gordon Darcy, Delon Armitage & Jamie Healslip with Lee McKenzie.

Miles Harrison & Jamie Heaslip are the commentators for the match.

VM1 in Ireland has lots of noise coming from the crowd for their commentary.

Channel 4 commentary has much quieter crowds in comparison.
