Following the breakaway group's first televised event in the Lada UK Masters on Anglia Television , satellite broadcaster Sky Sports signed a deal to exclusively cover three PDC tournaments each year.
To capitalise on its investment, the channel introduced a number of new techniques [ vague ] to make the coverage more interesting for armchair fans.
Over ten hours per day of live darts on Sky Sports is not uncommon. Sky television is an advertisement and subscription based channel, and generally after each set a commercial break is taken.
Planet Funk 's single " Chase the Sun " is played in the auditorium and it has become a cult track amongst darts fans, who tend to dance along to the tune during the breaks.
Currently Sky Sports broadcasts six tournaments live each year in both Ireland and the United Kingdom. With ITV being an advertisement channel like Sky Sports, when commercial breaks are taken after 4 legs as the tournaments that ITV cover do not play in sets.
In , Bravo signed a contract to show the European Championships. In , Sky Sports decided to extend their coverage of the Premier League Darts to following the high number of viewers to previous tournaments.
DJ Ötzi 's " Hey! Baby " is played during the breaks on the BBC. Sky Sports introduced more cameras to cover the sport, and many of these innovations have been copied by other broadcasters.
Unique flight cams show the trajectory of the dart through the air in slow motion to sometimes surprising results. A tiny camera has also been inserted into the dartboard itself beside the number 16 — one of the most common doubles — that shows the darts being thrown towards the board.
Sky Sports have also used a player cam ; a tiny camera was fitted to Dennis Priestley's shirt to capture his view of the action while playing.
Elsewhere, floating video cameras capture the action of the watching crowds. Spectators become far more animated and vocal than their BDO counterparts, often acting similar to a football crowd, while holding up humorous placards — often featuring corny puns — regarding the players, and chanting or singing various songs related to the players or to the event in general.
Some supporters even wear face paint or crazy costumes or they dress up as their favourite player via their trademark attire or customary nickname.
The players' wives have also been a focus for the cameras, as they cheered or screeched on their husbands.
In January , Sky One commissioned a programme entitled Darts Players' Wives , primarily focusing on the wives and their relationships.
Another frequent cam is a split-screen camera, with the players on the right, and the dartboard on the left. If the first two darts hit the triple 20, the camera will zoom in to the spot before the third dart is thrown.
John Gwynne has covered all PDC events from the inaugural competition until his retirement in Dave Lanning covered all events up until December , when he retired.
He brought his own unique brand of commentary to the game, and was a cult figure amongst darts fans and sport fans alike.
He continued to commentate until his death in Jeff Stelling was the original presenter of Sky Sports' darts coverage, but most of the events are now presented by Clark.
In addition, the Premier League was fronted by Gary Newbon. ITV events were fronted by Matt Smith from to but are now hosted by Jacqui Oatley from who became the first regular female darts host in the UK.
Ned Boulting presents features and interviews and deputises if the presenter is unavailable. Bravo employed James Richardson and Dave Gorman to front its coverage until the channel closed in The PDC sought to attract a younger audience of both sexes for darts and market the game as a night out rather than just as a sporting event.
Through the years, it was not uncommon to see politicians, musicians, football players, boxers and other sporting personalities attending their events.
The British Darts Organisation have subsequently sought to emulate most of these innovations. Players enter matches with their own signature theme music whilst flanked by security men and, until , female valets down to the oche.
A "big-time" atmosphere was also created by using smoke machines and pyrotechnics during these sometimes elaborate entrances, similar to those used in boxing or wrestling.
At the oche, players only drink iced water during matches. Though this was intended to further the game's image, which had been tarnished by players' reputation for consuming large quantities of alcohol.
The water is also needed to prevent dehydration: with the many lights and packed crowds, temperatures have been measured at over degree Celsius degree Fahrenheit during some games.
Inside the venues, action is relayed via giant video screens for the large crowds. The BDO now also has video screens, while maintaining their traditional "light boards" of lightbulbs, showing where each dart lands for the benefit of the crowd.
Eric Bristow , the most successful player in the first few years of the World Championship, had his nickname "The Crafty Cockney" emblazoned on the back of his shirt.
Very few dart players had their own nicknames until the Professional Darts Corporation circuit made it almost customary for every player to acquire a nickname.
This helps to create a new generation of characters with which its audience could identify. However, the tag never caught on and it was not until a later tournament that he came out to the tune The Power by Snap!
Sky Sports even filmed vignettes where a kilt wearing Jamie had his face painted blue and ran through woods throwing his darts whilst looking menacing.
As the only player to wear a shirt, tie and waistcoat whilst playing, Rod Harrington 's "Prince of Style" tag appeared apt.
Bob Anderson, now living in Clevedon in Somerset , is known as The Limestone Cowboy, after the limestone hills of Wiltshire where Bob used to live, and the fact that he enjoys Country and Western music.
This was once taken even further, with Anderson once walking to the stage accompanied by a horse. Bravo broadcast the European Championships for the first time in , after ITV4 televised the first running in The World Championship is a single-elimination seeded tournament beginning in late December and finishing in early January.

Held each year in June at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton — , and from in March at Butlins, Minehead, the UK Open is played over three days with players in a single elimination tournament.
After each round a draw is held where there is no protection for seeded players. This has earned it the nickname The FA Cup of darts.
Phil Taylor is the most successful player in the tournament's history, with five victories. Matches are contested over legs rather than sets, presenting the prospect of some surprising results and upsets.
Phil Taylor has been the dominant player in this event, winning 16 titles and being undefeated in his first 15 finals. Its original venue was the Casino Rooms in Rochester, Kent until , with one staging in Rosslare in before moving in to its current home at the CityWest Hotel in Dublin, Ireland.

Taylor's reign ended when Michael van Gerwen joined the league in and topped the table after the weekly rounds in each of the seven times since, winning five times.
