Live TV coverage of Everton's game at Norwich City next week will be split between BBC One and BBC Two.The meeting at Carrow Road on Wednesday, 24 June will be the BBC's second live Premier League match of the restarted season, after screening Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace live this Saturday.
At the designated kick-off time of 6pm, BBC1 carries the scheduled evening news, with an unnamed BBC source saying "The news is very important at the moment, and we don't think it's too much to ask for viewers to change the channel."
The first half will be shown on BBC Two, with fans being asked to switch over to BBC One half-way through to watch the second half.

Im guessing The BBC applied to air this game knowing they also had the news to broadcast? Dont understand it but then again with our injury record the news may be more enjoyable after halftime

What is the news the liberal media selling recently? Oh, Black Lives Matter, to get every £'s worth. The narrative changes when the right start defending the county's heritage and statues. From some in the Black Lives Matter attacking the police and that being an exception to the gathering and social distancing, the right are homed in on by the liberal selling media.
The media are just good sellers. To be fair to the media, they know their market and sell newsworthy stories. Well they will rinse every drop in the liberal era.

Rather than find another reason to moan, it could be said that Sky are doing us a favour by giving us a larger TV audience to play in front of as Sunday's game is predicted to be the highest ever TV audience for a Premier League game.
Pick is available to non-Sky Sports subscribers, which will no doubt include a lot of Blues fans who ordinarily would have been at the match and not watching from home.
There are plenty of reasons to criticise Sky TV but not sure this is one of them. You may have had more of a point if it was only available to Sky Sports subscribers.

You do come up with some (brilliant) groaners.

The experiment results tell us that people will just be like sheep and never question authority. Because I am informed does not mean 'I talk shit.' Most of you have no idea what goes on in the real world in secret.
Football is my distraction. I help families online in the family court situation, these authorities cover up stolen children, ie up to several thousand family court bundles and the law being ignored, also covers up child abuse by foster carers and adopters using law... a bit like the government covered up child abuse by VIP child abusers.

......despite the fact that the site is very much an Everton football forum.
Think there's still some things you don't get!

As I scrolled through Twitter, I was reading about the fabulous work of a 22-year-old black working-class footballer, who caused a government U-turn on feeding hungry children. I scrolled down Marcus Rashford's feed and noticed the only criticism coming from 'free market libertarian Brexit/Conservatives'. Thought they would have been happy that a working-class lad was working against the elite.
Well done Marcus Rashford. A great British working-class story.

Since there will be no proper winner of the Premiership for the 2019-20 season, we might as well regard it as one of those "getting to know the controls" games you get on Fifa 20xx.
As for the "derby", I would suggest that if Everton get the kick-off, they score an immediate own goal and then wander about the pitch messing about with phones, chatting, sitting about, doing a bit of running up and down so that they don't get any further injuries.
Ancelotti should come out with a statement that we aren't taking any of these games seriously.
I doubt whether I'll bother to watch any of the games, it will be like the Champions League, a matter of complete indifference.

Very easy to complete.

Joe, # 22. Thanks for the clarification Joe. You have probably saved me from the divorce courts, as I was going to lump the value of our house at the bookies on the result you "know what the outcome will be" this Sunday. I, like you, and probably every other blue, hate derby matches and want them over ASAP, but I would never go into one thinking we are going to lose.

Don't knock the remote.

John W, sometimes I think it's better not to bring your job home with you, mate, because it's heartbreaking what you tell us about these kids, probably enough to turn any decent human-being around the bend, and I can tell by some of your posts that it's something that really troubles you at times.
What good would it do for Ancelotti to come out with such a statement, Charles? It's been proven that the football has got to return because of the financial aspect involved, and it's the players, managers, coaches and agents who take most of the money out the game, so that's the last thing I'd expect him to say.

If I continue watching Everton, and I've already renewed my season ticket, I will share the match-day experience with approximately 40,000 other supporters, and the sound effects will be from all present at the game, and not manufactured by TV in their efforts to generate even more revenue.
33 Posted 16/06/2020 at 23:21:06
Going to play havoc recording it on the Sky+.
34 Posted 17/06/2020 at 00:09:42
Winning 1-0 at half time and then lose 2-1 we can (and will) blame the channel switch for the result. 😂

Many blues (if not all) will share your concern. I don't think anybody is fooling themselves into thinking the RS are anything other than clear favourites for this game... but, there is a clear difference between the likely and the certain.
I remember a crowd of excited race goers cornered a famous Irish trainer. They were looking for confirmation that his horse would win. He responded by telling them "Listen to me. My fella is the best horse in this race, but there's no such ting as a good ting"... Most didn't listen and his horse straggled home plum last.
That was over 30 years ago and it still resonates today with me. Nothing in sport is certain.
The shite may be overwhelming favourites, but they only become an absolute certainty if we concede the game before a ball is kicked.
Pressure does strange things to sportsmen. We as a club – the fans, the coaching staff and the players – have an obligation to ensure they feel it in spades.

Frankly, I'd like to see the entire industry collapse, and we revert to a less corrupt, more interesting form where teams like Derby, Notts Forest, Preston North End - even Leeds - can put together a low cost team together with an outstanding manager and win the biggest prizes, by which I mean the League and Cup competitions, not the money-laundering exercises that the "Champions" "League" and criminal-administered World Cup are.
We now have a game where "Fair Play" means ensuring that clubs can only spend what they have spent previously. It's like the court of Louis XIV or something where only the existing aristos ever get anything. Hence Man City get hammered, whereas the club whose travelling fans are best known for rioting and killing Italians are made part of a permanently subsidised "elite" group.
