Snooker is a sport with a huge cult following, particularly in Europe and Asia. But due to the small venues, it's very hard to get tickets to see the big matches in person, which is why so many matches and tournaments are broadcast on live TV.
Don't worry though, because our live snooker TV listings are completely free. This page is updated daily, and shows the complete broadcast schedule for all the televised matches. We'll make sure you don't miss a thing.
The vast majority of live snooker has always been shown live on the BBC, which means it's completely free to watch in the UK. They have the rights to show the Snooker World Championship AND the UK Championship, which means you can access both live coverage and highlights through your television, or online through the iPlayer streaming service.
Other world snooker tournaments are available on ITV Sport, and the FreeSports channel.
The start time of many domestic and world snooker matches is often flexible, as it is dependent on previous matches finishing. For that reason, our snooker TV listings show the start time of the program as a whole, rather than individual fixtures (except for semi-finals and finals, when this is often the same thing).
There have been some incredible matches over the years, featuring some of the nation's favourite players. Think back to watching the likes of Steve Davis and Denis Taylor in the 1980s, Steven Hendry compete in the World Snooker Championships in the 1990s, and of course Ronnie O'Sullivan and John Higgins in the 2000s through to Mark Selby, Neil Robertson and Judd Trump in the present day.
These are household names who always draw a huge following, and with prize money going up, the sport is sure to grow even more popular in future. So make sure you don't miss out. Just keep an eye on the listings above and make a date in your diary for the next time your favourite player is competing.
Did you know that snooker is also available to watch on live streaming services?
Live streaming allows you to watch snooker through your PC, mobile or tablet. So you can catch all the live action from anywhere, even if you can't be near the TV. There's also the opportunity to catch even more matches that aren't being shown on live TV in the UK, so it's well worth checking out.
