ESPN3 carried the Germany-France soccer match live as terrorists attacked Paris on Nov. 13. At least one explosion could be heard on the telecast.

Though ESPN3 streamed the entire game until it ended, ESPN decided that it would not make the game available in its archives.

“We made the decision to pull the replay because the situation was still unfolding, and we wanted to respect the difficult and emotional circumstances,” ESPN said in an emailed statement.
