Help me out again please.
FA Cup semi on TV at 3:30 on a Saturday. I know that restrictions were dropped for Covid but have they not been reinstated to ban live 3pm KO's? No other cup game has been shown at this time so why this one?
I'm usually across this stuff but this one is confusing - the highly unusual 3.30 KO and breaking the Sat afternoon blackout. V odd.

They say the FA have lifted the ban as there are no other league games (below EPL). Firstly, I thought it was a government law not FA ban and secondly it was to stop people watching a bigger game than going to watch their local team in the lower leagues.
Man Utd 2-1 Norwich
Southampton 1-0 Arsenal
Watford 0-1 Brentford
