ESPN+ to stream every FA Cup third round match

Every English FA Cup third round match will be streamed in the United States for the first time this season.

Rights-holder ESPN+, Disney’s sports subscription service, has committed to airing every match from the round. Previous rights-holder Fox Sports usually aired or streamed only a handful of matches from each round.

ESPN + in total will air 79 FA Cup matches from the 2018-19 competition. The coverage began with Monday’s Southport-Tranmere tie.
