On opening weekend Stoke are away to Reading.

Arsenal are home to Sunderland.

I wonder if Reading's rearranged game with Chelsea (22nd August) will be televised. Are they allowed to?

It will be televised, but not live (in the UK). It's Champions League final qualifying round night (1st legs).

For your information, approximate commencement dates for broadcast selections are as follows:
The League plan to circulate changes to draft fixtures including TV picks (matches Aug-Nov) by July 5th
So don't expect anything until THURSDAY

It's looking imminent that the TV fixtures will be released shortly as Sky Live on Sky Sports online has placed Premier League dates and times to be announced on its web page.

I very much doubt it. They very rarely, if ever, have PL and FL games clashing on Sky. Obviously the final day is different, and if ESPN have a PL game on a Saturday evening then Sky are going to be fine putting an FL game on at that time, same goes for Sundays, but they very rarely, if ever, have a direct clash on Sky.

TV games are out. Not on the PL website yet, but Sky start with Wigan vs. Chelsea and Man City vs. Southampton on the Sunday, and Everton vs. Manchester United on the Monday night.

So Sky havent picked a 1245 Saturday match on the opening day and ESPN get the first match of the season?

How odd.

Same as what happened last season. They clearly prefer the Super Sunday double/MNF combination.

As I said a day or 2 ago, and as I expected, there are no FL/PL clashes on Sky. The only clashes are the same as the last couple of seasons, ie PL on ESPN clashing with FL on Sky, but that won't bother Sky as they're seemingly happy with that as it means they don't have a clash on their own channels.

They actively avoid clashing PL and FL if they can help it (PL and SPL doesn't seem to bother them).

The only major clashes I can remember in recent seasons are the Merseyside Derby going up against a non-British CL game (the Derby was re-arranged due to the CC Final), and PL (Everton vs. Sunderland, I think?), Carling Cup (Manchester Derby) and SPL games on SS1/2/3 all at the same time.

Oh don't get me wrong I know they actively try to avoid clashes where possible at least with the PL and FL, was merely confirming that what I expected to happen (no PL/FL clashes on Sky) has happened.

They probably wont be as the season progresses, there is some level of co-operation between ESPN and Sky and one or two slots were swapped last season I think.

Slightly surprisingly, Spurs v Liverpool is not live.

ESPN gets Man Utd v Spurs so Sky miss two head to heads up to end of November .

Three if you include Newcastle as a "big" side and all before the end of September too.

Given that Sky have ceded/lost the 12.45 Saturday games to BT from 2013/14 I would expect them to minimise the number of times they use this slot for major games this season.

Psychological warfare to plant the impression that this slot is not the place to find big teams.

There are some in the list, mostly local derby games like Arsenal v Chelsea that are probably police dictates. But a lot of Swansea, West Ham type games notice. Where possible Sky will put big games on Sunday where they always rate better than Saturday lunch time. And this will reinforce the impression with viewers that by retaining all Sunday games in 2013/14 and adding the Saturday evening games from ESPN that they are still the channel to turn to.
