Sky and BT can surely see when the fixture list comes out in June what games they want to televise and plan and notify accordingly at that point.
It works Super League (Rugby League) - they announced the fixture list on November 8th 2018 ahead of the 2019 Season which kicked off on the first weekend of February. That included all date changes because of Sky television, so, you knew in November that a fixture the following July or August was going to be on a Thursday Night because of Sky coverage or a Sunday afternoon because it was not on Sky.

The only time that did not ring true was the final two weeks of the season.

I don't think that we need to go to that extreme. But, I firmly believe that things can be done better and announced almost weekly with a minimum of 12 weeks notice - August excluded which would have all fixture changes announced when the fixtures are released in June.
