UKTV’s Dave channel has extended its current content deal with Red Bull Media House and renewed freestyle motocross series Red Bull X-Fighters for a fifth season. In addition, the channel has also acquired the rights to Red Bull’s Cliff Diving World Series, which will premiere this autumn.
Red Bull Cliff Diving is a high diving event series that has been touring the globe for the past three years. The programme will make its UK debut with its 2012 series (titled Red Bull Cliff Diving 2012) on Dave on Sunday October 7th at 5pm. The seven episode series, which is presented by Bonita Norris, documents the action as the world’s best high divers leap from a 27m platform in stunning locations such as Corsica, The Azores and the Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales.
Speaking of the acquisition of Red Bull Cliff Diving, Steve North, General Manager of Dave, commented: “Red Bull Cliff Diving 2012 is an action-packed feast of adrenaline-filled entertainment and we are confident Dave viewers will find the series compelling viewing.”
While Sally Quick, UKTV’s Director of Commercial Partnerships, added: “We are delighted to be working with Red Bull again on a further project building on the success of Red Bull X Fighters. Red Bull Cliff Diving 2012 is genuinely jaw-dropping and we think Dave viewers are going to be astonished by the sheer drops and amazing dexterity of the athletes.”
