The BBC has reportedly decided against showing Bradford City's FA Cup quarter-final against Reading.
All four last-eight ties will be shown live on UK television, but the BBC decided against broadcasting the Bantams despite having first and third picks.
According to The Telegraph this evening, the BBC chose Manchester United vs. Arsenal first and then Aston Villa vs. West Bromwich Albion after BT Sport had selected Liverpool vs. Blackburn Rovers with its first pick, leaving Bradford vs. Reading for BT.
The BBC yesterday defended its decision not to show Bradford's fifth-round victory over Sunderland, insisting that they "would have loved" to have chosen it over Aston Villa's win against Leicester City.
However, it seems that the broadcaster has again passed over the Bantams, who are in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the first time in almost 40 years, for an all-Premier League tie.No Data Analysis info
