Over the last few years, darts has become one of the most popular spectator sports in the UK. If you've never been to watch live darts, you've been missing out. Most fans agree that the atmosphere is like nothing else you'll ever experience.
The sport's popularity has also coincided with a huge increase in television exposure. A decade ago there was hardly any live darts on TV, but these days you can expect to be able to watch some almost every week. It's fast becoming one of the most popular live sports on TV, with audiences in the millions.
You get a good sense of the venue's atmosphere when you watch on TV, plus you also benefit from a better view, with close up camera angles, and expect commentary and analysis.
If you want to keep up to date with what darts is on TV this week, then you're on the right page. The listings above, which are updated daily, let you see what events are being shown, what channel they're on and what time the coverage starts. All you need to do is make sure you're in front of your TV with a beer in your hand. You don't have to "stand up if you love the darts" when you're in your own living room, but you can if you like - nobody will judge you!
The darts TV coverage at the moment is shared between Sky Sports, ITV and to a lesser extent, the BBC. Sky have the PDC World Championships, the Darts Premier League, World Cup and World Matchplay. ITV shows The Masters, UK Open, European Championship and Players Championship. While the BBC has the Champions League.
We'd recommend a Sky subscription if you want to access the most live darts possible, but if you're new to the sport and just want to see how you like it, try watching one of the free to air channels first. Chances are you'll be hooked once you see what you've been missing out on.
