THE 2019 Ladbrokes UK Open will be broadcast exclusively across North America through DAZN from March 1-3.
 
Darts' biggest festival of action sees 159 players competing across three days at the Butlin's Minehead Resort, with eight stages in action simultaneously during the early rounds.
 
Under a ground-breaking new broadcast agreement, DAZN's worldwide coverage of PDC tournaments will extend to the USA throughout the UK Open.
 
That coverage will complement the broadcasts through DAZN in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Japan and Canada for the tournament, which is enjoying greater worldwide exposure than ever.
 
"This is a huge development for viewers in the USA and it's fantastic that they will be able to watch the Ladbrokes UK Open through DAZN," said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
 
"Our sport's global reach is now greater than ever and this deal to extend DAZN's support of PDC events into the USA is another hugely positive step for darts in those nations.
 
"The UK Open looks set to be a brilliant weekend - and with the open draw format is our most exciting and unpredictable tournament!"
 
The tournament's international flavour in the early rounds will also see Canada's Dawson Murschell and Spain's Toni Alcinas in action on the Main Stage, alongside the likes of three-time Lakeside Champion Glen Durrant.
 
The world's top 32 stars, headlined by World Champion Michael van Gerwen and reigning UK Open champion Gary Anderson, enter the action in Friday evening's fourth round.
