How to watch every FA Cup game for free on TV and online – including Fulham vs Leeds
How to watch all FA Cup games tonight: There are four FA Cup 5th Round games on free TV tonight. Here’s how to watch them all live on TV or online.
The FA Cup takes to midweek, which is quite rare for non-replay ties. However, given the fixture congestion following the winter World Cup, a lot of things are looking different this season.
There are eight games being played across Tuesday and Wednesday this week and all of them are on television. The four games tonight are all live with BBC and ITV sharing the broadcasting rights across terrestrial and digital platforms.

The games are: Stoke City v Brighton & Hove Albion, Leicester City v Blackburn Rovers, Fulham v Leeds United, and Bristol City v Manchester City.
The headliner is probably the all-Premier League clash of Fulham vs Leeds, which the BBC has chosen for its showpiece game tonight. However, we fancy Leicester City vs Blackburn to be a cracking game too, with potential for high-flying Rovers to spring an upset.
We’re all set for a big night of FA Cup action tonight. Here’s how to watch on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house. Four screens could equal four games if your internet connection can stand up to it!

Watch safely with a VPN
If you regularly watch live sports online, you can boost your online privacy within a virtual private network (VPN). This works by masking your IP address from would-be snoops and wrongdoers. You can read our guide to the best VPNs before streaming the games. If you’re seeking a safe and secure VPN, we’d recommend Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection for streaming top sport.
