The game against the Bees will still take place on Monday 22 April (Easter Monday), but as it has been picked to be shown live on Sky Sports, it will now kick off at 5:15pm, later than originally scheduled.
Leeds have seen quite a few of their league fixtures rescheduled for live coverage this term and, as it stands, there are three of their games which will be showing on television before the end of the campaign.
This Saturday's crucial clash between the Whites and fellow promotion chasers Sheffield United has also been chosen for TV coverage, with the Blades' visit to Elland Road kicking off at 12:30pm for the occasion.
Another Yorkshire derby, against the Blades' Steel City rivals Sheffield Wednesday, will also be shown on television, and as such will kick off at 5:30pm on Saturday 13 April, and then comes the televised Brentford game nine days later.
Leeds published an article with the news, which they also shared on their Twitter account:

Some of the Whites faithful gave their thoughts on the news, with some tired of yet another kickoff change for TV:
Thanks @SkySports I’ve had 4 tickets booked for the 19:03 train to Leeds for 3 weeks. Its now going to cost me a fortune to change them. Not really fair is it? Haven’t we been on tv enough this season? #LUFC #Ofcom #STVIFS— LL (@LeeLeelad) March 13, 2019

Fans attending games miss out once again having to rearrange and rebook costing £££s
When will SKY recognise this and operate a compensation fund? @SkySports #skysports

While some others weren't too fussed, or even pleased:

Don’t think I’ve ever been so pleased for a game to be moved! I’ll be watching while have breakfast in Las Vegas #ALAW— Gary Jackson (@lugazafc) March 13, 2019
If anyone can’t make it I’d gladly take two tickets off someone if that helps ⚪️— Boycie (@MrCee6) March 13, 2019

Almost no away tickets. Later KO equals more beer plus all us who can't attend can watch.— Poz (@Poz89) March 13, 2019
