ITV has:

The FA Cup:
One first pick match exclusively from rounds 1 and 2
Two matches (including first pick) exclusively from rounds 3 to 6.
First pick of four replays
Exclusive first pick Semi-Final
The FA Cup Final will be shown live simultaneously on ITV1 and Setanta Sport.
Highlights of all FA Cup ties (including those not broadcast on ITV)

New Media:
ITV has exclusive live simulcast rights for all FA Cup games and England International games on ITV1.
ITV has also secured broadband and mobile clip rights for all FA Cup and England games (including those not on ITV)

ITV has first-pick on 16 Live matches in FA-Cup; whilst Setanta could show upto 25 matches. Last season, ITV showed one first round tie, whilst setanta showed two.

With Sentanta bust, 2 games are available each round after ITV's pick for television. Dont think ESPN picked up Sentanta's rights for fa-cup.

one match on ITV - no chance of being us.

If it is confirmed as Paulton v Norwich I think that's a crap choice. There's no chance of an upset there. Paulton got knocked out of the Trophy by Bedfont Green ffs. The biggest chance of a proper cup upset would be us, Stourbridge v Walsall or Bromley v Colchester - with the Bromley game slightly ahead of us. I've dismissed Gateshead v Brentford cos it's in a crap athletics stadium.
