BBC America is breaking records with its coverage, and now the channel is adding even more hours of programming to its coverage of Professional Darts.

The channel is adding coverage of the 2018/2019 World Darts Championship from London’s sold-out Alexandra Palace, from Dec. 13 to Jan. 1.

“The best matches of the week will air Sunday mornings from 9:00am-12:00pm ET,” BBC America said. “BBCA will stream a record 111 hours live on BBC America.com. The Final will air in primetime on BBC AMERICA on Tuesday, January 1 at 9:30pm ET following the ‘Doctor Who’ New Year’s Day special.”

The event, said to be the world’s largest darts tournament, will feature 96 competitors and a record prize fund of more than $3.1 million. Top U.S. darts player Chuck Puleo will travel to London for his first Championship appearance.
