If streamed you'd need to buy a one-off PPV pass for the game as per the Betfreds. Last I heard Rovers were unsure if they'd be allowed to stream it.
I really don't see why the BBC would block it as their chosen game is on Monday night so not going to be impacted by Saturday games and Premier Sports who also have SC rights don't show live games at this early stage at all.

Next up for Jags is another crucial game, as they make the long journey to Coatbridge on Boxing Day to take on League 2 side Albion Rovers.
Buckie requested a delay in the fixture to the following Monday which Rovers refused, and Stewart warned that the decision could backfire on the SPFL side.
"It’s nothing to do with letting people enjoy themselves too much," he said. "But boys need to be able to relax and get away from football on Christmas day when it’s all about time with their families.
"It will be exactly the same for the Albion players and if we had been the home team I would have changed it, one hundred per cent.
"I don’t see how it benefits anyone playing this game on the day after Christmas.
"But, it’s probably made us more focused, not that we needed much of a gee-up. We might go an extra couple of per cent, up and beyond and hopefully that helps us get a result."
I understand the reasons to avoid playing on Boxing Day to enjoy Xmas however what about the practicalities of playing on 27th.
I presume they wanted a 3pm ko , so what if players are working that day as its not a holiday, would it cost them a days wages? Or if it were an evening KO would the Buckie players be happy getting home in early hours of 28th ?
Sounds like a bit of grandstanding knowing full well it would not be changed.
Let's send them home with their tails between their legs. C'mon the Rovers 👍😀
I think this is a bit of mind games by Buckie surely they should be up for this match regardless. I’m hoping the manager can use this as a bit of motivation- we need a team that will truly battle for everything out there.
