Welcome to Front Runner – the home of free sports

Front Runner is UK’s first and only free-to-air sports channel, broadcasting the best action from across the globe to 19 million homes in the UK and Northern Ireland.

There’s live sports, highlights and documentaries from the worlds of motorsport, professional fighting, poker and much more.

Along with adrenaline-fuelled action, we also have the latest episodes from Mobil 1 The Grid, Bike World and Gillette World Sport.

And we’re the first channel to bring back the 70s pub game show The Indoor League and helped the hit US show Poker Night in America make its debut on UK television.

In the coming months, we’ll be adding even more content to our schedule. So keep up-to-date through our social media platforms and blog.




Front Runner is showing this year’s British GT Championship LIVE for the first time in the motorsport’s 25-year history and also this season’s MINI Challenge. There’s also a chance to catch up on global motorsport with the latest episodes of Mobil 1 The Grid and Bike World.



Hit US show Poker Night in America made its UK debut on Front Runner. Some of the biggest names on the circuit play cash games with real chips. World Poker Tour is also popular among our poker fans. Watch players keep their cool when there’s hundreds of thousand of dollars at stake.


Professional fighting

Every weekend, we show fantastic combat sports action. Professional fighters battle it out in Fights from the Vault and find out more about these dedicated athletes in Behind the Fighter. New to our schedule is arm wrestling and chessboxing, which combines chess and boxing for seriously intense action.
