The BBC has agreed a five-year contract extension to broadcast World Snooker’s three major tournaments.
The deal to show the World Championship, UK Championship and the Masters on TV and online now runs until the end of the 2023-24 season.
This year’s UK Championship is under way York, with the Masters in London in January and the World Championship in Sheffield in April and May.
Snooker has been televised by the BBC since 1969.
World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn said: “So many great moments in the history of our sport are synonymous with the coverage they have received on the BBC.
