Why is Match of the Day always unavailable on iPlayer?

On several different occasions, I've come to the BBC website to watch Match of the Day and every single time, of all the programs that I can watch with your iPlayer, Match of the Day is always unavailable.

I watch less that 5 hours of television a week. Match of the Day is part of that 5 hours, yet the monkey gods of eternal irony see fit to block from watching the only thing that's actually worth watching.

I live in Yorkshire. Not the Maldives. Not the Cayman Islands. Yorkshire.

Why can I not watch Match of the Day?
