Snooker Stays on The BBC!

Looks like Snooker will stay on the BBC until 2019!

Various sources reporting this, including this link here

This means the World Snooker Championships, the Masters and the UK Championships will remain free-to-air.  ITV4 have rights to the Snooker Shoot Out, the Champion of Champions and the World Grand Prix.

What is uncertain, is the future of BBC Red Button.  If the Red Button closes, then a lot of fans will miss out on evening sessions from the BBC tournaments, which will be available online only via the BBC Sport Website or App.

Either way, Snooker stays free!
