How does it get around the blanket ban on live football broadcasts on a Saturday afternoon? Does it not count when there's an international break?
The dates when live broadcasts are blocked is here:

I haven't checked whether the other 'missing' dates are international weekends.

I think all the missing dates are international, but it is still dissapointing that they show this when most of the other 120 games are being played

Leeds + groundhopping
Yeah, very disappointing.
I need to be in Burton-on-Trent that evening, so if Lichfield had been 1230 that would have been ideal to double with one of the several others around there.
Never mind. Just 1 it will have to be.

Unlikely to be Lymington, as their game against Torquay was televised in 2018/19. Hope they go for Longlevens.

5 Level 9s definiely home with Longlevens the best bet

6 other possibilities (one of which is certain to be a 9) subject to replays
Walton & Hersham (former Amateur Cup finalists) & Shaftesbury ("Hovis" Hill) maybe

Longlevens strikes me as the most likely choice. Spalding v Kettering and Chichester v Maidstone could be other possibilities.
I'd have thought it unlikely that they'll pick a game not involving a Step 2 team. Jersey Bulls could well win and then draw one such in Q3.

Others that stand out in my opinion that would also be great TV choices

Marske United v South Shields
Belper Town v Tamworth
Spalding United v Kettering Town
Ware v Hemel Hempstead Town
Burgess Hill Town v Dorking Wanderers
Frome Town v Oxford City
Shaftesbury v Bath City

If they get past Sutton Common then draw a Step 2 side at home, then yeah, for me it would be a pretty much nailed on pick

Unlikely to be Longlevens now I reckon as the fixture is now being played at Gloucester City.

Shaftesbury v Bath would be a good shout.

Mystic John gets it right. KO Sat at 12:30, so I can watch it and catch a local game afterwards.
It was set at 12.30 before the TV company selected it

Sat 2nd Oct - 3rd QF

York City v Whitby Town, praps. Possible upset, owing to Whitby's good start - and a North Yorkshire derby.

Good opportunity to give an outing to tales of York's 1955 run to the semi-finals.

I had pencilled in York-Southport, on October 9, for my first visit to the LNER. But I might be tempted by the Whitby game.

Other potential options:
Marske v Darlo/Chester
Runcorn Linnets v Gateshead
Aylesbury United v Ebbsfleet United

The first of these seems like a strong shout if Darlo win.

Further evidence of the utter nonsense of FA Cup replays! The FA don’t worry about ‘traditions’ when playing the SFs at Wembley or the final kicking off at 5.15pm so why bother with replays?

In the F.A. Cup early rounds you cannot even opt for a single game with a shoot out AET, there must be a replay.
Whereas when they become inconvenient in the last 16 they move to midweek and without replays.
