Sky Sports carry live matches from the Premiership on Sundays and Mondays in Britain and Europe.  ITV will show some FA Cup matches *LIVE*, including Everton v Newcastle Utd.

The Live Sunday Afternoon Sky match (normal KO: 4pm BST) is also distributed throughout the world, including some (but not all) by Setanta Sport in North America.  

The Live Monday Night Sky match (normal KO: 8pm BST) is also distributed throughout the world by CSI Ltd and by ESPN International to SE Asia and Latin America, with some live coverage in Canada on TSN, and live or tape-delayed coverage in the USA on ESPN2.  Check your local listings.
