Sky Sports to air Tough Mudder for free

Sky has announced that it’ll broadcast this year’s World’s Toughest Mudder on its non-subscription channel, Sky Sports Mix. If you’ve got Sky or Virgin Media TV, you’ll be able to watch the main muddy match, plus a pre-show and post-show.

World's Toughest Mudder is the most extreme competition of the Mudder lot - it's a "gruelling" 24-hour endurance race with all the obstacles (and muck) of the smaller events, aimed at the more extreme competitors.

Sky will air it on 26 January, though it's also agreed to show two more Tough Mudder series throughout the year. There'll also be a six-part series about the contest's 'everyday heroes', and another snow that follows five Olympians competing in the race.

That's as well as a whole host of extreme sports coming to the Mix channel, including snowboarding, cliff diving, and surfing. And drone racing.

Will Dean, Tough Mudder founder and CEO, said: "We are thrilled to partner with Sky to expand our video content distribution footprint globally, bringing Tough Mudder to millions of people throughout the UK. Our partnership with Sky will allow us to continue reaching a global audience, while bringing Tough Mudder to Sky Sports' millions of viewers."

Catch the main event on 26 January, 8.30pm on Sky Sports Mix - Sky channel 407, or Virgin Media channel 507. The post-show is on straight afterwards, and you can catch the pre-show on 24 January.
