The Blues will have to wait until the middle of next week to find out who their next opponent in the FA Cup will be, but Chelsea fans already know that they won't be able to watch that game on television. The coverage for the fourth round of the FA Cup was announced today, and unfortunately, Chelsea's match against either Millwall or Bradford City will not be shown live.

Here's the full slate of televised games:

Friday 23 January

Cambridge United v Manchester United – 7.55pm – BBC One

Saturday 24 January

Blackburn Rovers v Swansea City - 12.45pm - BBC Wales

Liverpool v Bolton Wanderers – 5.30pm – BT Sport

Sunday 25 January

Doncaster Rovers or Bristol City v Everton or West Ham United – 2pm – BBC One

Brighton & Hove Albion v Arsenal – 4pm – BT Sport

Monday 26 January

Rochdale v Stoke City – 8pm – BT Sport

I look forward to the day when the FA smartens up and realizes fans of every other club in the competition might want to watch. Streaming coverage of the games that aren't televised is something that should be available in 2015, and might actually get fans excited about the FA Cup.
