Re: FA Cup Draw Thread

Games that weren't selected for live TV coverage in rounds 1 & 2 were all streamed online on the BBC Sport site, don't suppose any chance of that happening with round 3? Not sure if the TV rights the Premier League Clubs signed away during TV deals will make this not possible.
