The paper has just listed them based on midweek and bank hol known games. It's not the full Sky confirmation.

"While Pompey wait to see which games could be moved, 16 of their upcoming games can already be determined due to the automatic live coverage for midweek and bank holiday games."

Derby newspaper done the same piece - https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/derby-county-fixtures-tv-games-9372662
 
Sky will announce the games, expect all clubs to announce them at the same time, I’m guessing 9am.
 
Ah, I see. Didn't know all midweek games are on sky. Not great for stadium attendances.
Championship midweek games have always been available by Sky Red Button (ifollow style single camera etc) any way even prior to this new TV deal.
I think the new deal will bring more midweek games that have proper coverage i.e. with studio pundits etc.
 
Sky are getting very close to missing their own deadline. The plenty of notice thing was all a load of waffle to placate fans.
They have missed it. You'd think they'd at least stick to the first deadline to reassure people.

We'll be given less than four weeks notice in Spring, they've got plenty of form for missing deadlines and messing match going supporters about. I usually watch plenty of iFollow games but Sky aren't getting a penny from me.
 
They're definitely out today - just asked someone who works at the EFL.
Fine, but why phrase it as "within" 7 days. They should've either said "around one week" or given today's date.

Their next deadline is just as vague:
  • Before the start of the season, selections shall be made in respect of all matches scheduled to be played prior to the end of the third round of the FA Cup (January 2024).
They should give a date and a time, just like fixture releases, cup draws, etc.

Well if they're releasing them today, they've clearly picked them comfortably within the timeframe.
The two parties will have decided on a 1pm release. They'll be sat in draft form on the various websites/social media with a publish action set for 13:00.
Much like when we've signed a player, and start doing the xx:30 and xx:45 teaser tweets ahead of a xx:00 announcement.

Why 1pm, and not 9am, who knows. Does the extra 4 hours actually have any impact on anything?

Coventry away now Friday 16th Aug 8pm

"United’s opening game at home to Norwich City was selected for Sky Sports with a 12.30pm kick-off on Saturday, 10th August, and we have now been picked on two further occasions." - ALL matches on on Sky!

Don't mind Coventry on a Friday night personally as it'll be easier to get a ticket and it's one of the few grounds I can get back from after an evening game.

However, last train to Oxford is 10.26pm from the main Coventry station, just about doable after a 7.45pm kick off. 8pm kick off fucks it unless you leave early or have a very quick taxi driver.

I'd look at booking an Uber from Coventry's stadium to the main stadium. Get them to pick you up in the retail park perhaps?

Bit of a bummer, it's my local away game and was looking forward to a few beers in the city beforehand.

due to train cancellations after the last game (after a few beers) a group of 4 of us got an Uber back to Oxford and somehow only cost about £25-£30 each.
