Further to my post here from yesterday, I have found that the home leg on 6th August will be on ITV4, starting at 7:30pm (kick off is at 7:45pm).
No word yet on the away leg which happens in two days’ time, but I will keep an eye on http://www.livesportontv.com/football/ which seems to be a good source to find almost any sport on UK channels.
Update July 29, 2009 at 19:48 – Still no sign that the game tomorrow is going to be televised live. Radio 5 Live will presumably have updates at the very least, but has scheduled programmes about the Ashes.
I think Setanta would have had the rights, but of course they went bust last month and disappeared from the airwaves (does digital tv have ‘airwaves’?). ESPN, the new channel that will pick up Setanta’s Premiership contract, start on Monday 3 August, but that’s a bit late. I don’t even think it’s being televised in Lithuania, despite it being the furthest that any Lithuanian club has gone in the UEFA cup.
If anything changes in the next 24 hours, I will update this post.
Update August 9, 2009 at 18:45 – The away leg was not televised live, but the home leg definitely is on ITV4. Great if you have cable, satellite or access to a pub. For those of us too far away to get to SW6, it will be a chance to finally savour being back in Europe. It’s been a long 7 years…

Still no news, and I’m not sure about these live streaming sites. The club website will have full audio (link is on the right)
