Sky Sports will for the first time dedicate an entire channel to darts this Christmas.
Sky Sports 3 will become Sky Sports Darts at 6am on December 18 and be the home of darts until January 5.
Sky Sports Darts will launch on December 18 and offer viewers over 370 hours of programming, including live coverage of one sport’s most colourful events, the William Hill World Darts Championship.
The channel will offer 18 days of non-stop tungsten television, as the biggest names in arrows battle for the Sid Waddell Trophy in front of sell-out crowds at Alexandra Palace.
Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor, Adrian ‘Jackpot’ Lewis and defending champion ‘Mighty’ Michael van Gerwen will be amongst a field of 72 players from around the world, with every clash live on Sky Sports Darts.
As well as live coverage of the World Championship, Sky Sports Darts will screen a host of programmes and features including a fascinating documentary with reigning champion van Gerwen.
