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 18 December until 5 January and offer pubs over 370 hours of programming, including live coverage of the William Hill World Darts Championship. 

It will also screen a host of programmes including a documentary with reigning champion Michael van Gerwen.

Sky Business managing director David Rey said: “The World Darts Championship is one of sport’s most colourful events and for the first time, we’re giving it its own channel. 

“Sky Sports Darts will offer all the drama, excitement and atmosphere from Alexandra Palace for two weeks over Christmas.  The channel will show every match live, all the build-up and analysis plus a fantastic schedule of features too. 

“We know darts offers a great opportunity for pubs to create big events around the festive season and we can’t wait for the show to begin.”

Live coverage of The 2015 William Hill World Darts Championship will be presented by Dave Clark who will be joined in the studio by, three-times World Champion John Part, Wayne Mardle and former World Champions Eric Bristow and Rod Harrington.
