Front Runner announces Freeview sports service details

Front Runner has announced details about its new service on Freeview channel 91, the only dedicated sports TV channel on the platform.

Shows featuring skateboarding, snowboarding, watersports, motocross, BMX as well as MMA fighting will be given UK exclusives on Freeview channel 91, with live sport coming soon.

The Freeview service, which first appeared on the EPG last week, offers a different selection of content compared to the Sky and Freesat service of the same name.

There’s also action from the final tables of premiere high-stakes poker tournaments around the world.

Shows being screened include:

M80. (Mondays, 11pm)
A fast-paced and wild TV show that will amuse and entertain those who live in the world of freestyle motocross. The show focuses on the fast speeds, wild tricks and stunts by the best riders.

Built to Shred. (Wednesdays, 10pm)
Built to Shred host Jeff King teams up with world famous skateboarders including Tony Hawk and Ryan Sheckler to develop the most elaborate and challenging riding environments possible.

Adventures of Danny and the Dingo. (Thursdays, 10.30pm)
Danny Kass and The Dingo appear in back-to-back episodes each Sunday from 10am. They take a three-month tour looking for fresh snowboarding talent in an often hilarious riot of action and humour.

Thrillbillies. (Thursdays, 11pm)
Inspired by Travis Pastrana’s popular DVD of the same name, “Thrillbillies” expands into a full blown series featuring a bathtub brew of dimwitted dares and half-baked stunts.

Ryan Scarratt, of Front Runner, said:
 “We’re really excited to be bringing these shows to UK TV for the first time. We know there’s a huge audience out there in the action sports world, and we’re they’re going to love watching what these guys get up to.”

Front Runner TV is available to Freeview viewers with a DVB-T2 compatible device (Freeview HD, Freeview Play, YouView, EE TV). Its signal covers just over 70% of UK households.
