BT Sports announces Bradford FA Cup freebie on Sky and online

BT Sport has announced today that it will be showing Bradford City v Reading on Saturday 7th March and Liverpool v Blackburn on Sunday 8th March in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

BT Sport will be making the Bradford v Reading clash free to all on and on the Sky platform.

BT TV customers will be able to enjoy the game as normal.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “The excitement of the FA Cup continues on BT Sport and we have two fantastic quarter-finals on the channel."

The move to make Bradford's match free-to-view on BT Sport capitalises on recent criticism of the BBC, who have opted not to show Bradford's progress in the FA Cup live and free to air on all TV platforms.

A BBC spokesperson said:
“We believe we have selected the most appealing quarter-final fixtures for our audiences, bearing in mind we share the order of picks with our broadcasting partners BT Sport. We will be showing extended highlights of all quarter final ties on Match of the Day, plus there’s live commentary of all matches on Radio 5 live.
