The following statement was issued by the National League this afternoon.
The League has been in discussions with BT on the timing restriction on Clubs placing their highlights online and the difficulties this can cause some Clubs.
Yesterday BT confirmed they are in agreement for the restriction to be amended so that Clubs can upload their highlights immediately following the BT Highlights show rather than the current restriction.
Whilst the timing of the BT Highlights show may vary, and are typically scheduled at 22:00, finishing at 22:30 – that is the case for the forthcoming weeks.
Should there be any amends to the timings we will ensure they are sent to the Clubs.
Should there not be a weekend highlights show, highlights cannot be uploaded until after the blackout in accordance with Article 48.
In relation to midweek highlights, these can be shown immediately following the completion of the game.
This amendment is effective immediately and the League are grateful to BT for this concession.
