Broadcast on Channel 4 since 2003, Freesports on 4 is the UK’s only terrestrial television platform for major action sports events, tours and stunts and is now in its 11th series.
The BAFTA and RTS award winning series acts as a platform to promote niche sports to a mass audience through educating, entertaining, and analysing, all with expert commentary.
The series has seen BOOM crews film around the world at some of the planet’s biggest action sports events covering Surfing, Snowboarding, Skateboarding, Mountain Biking and BMX to name but a few.
The series has also meant our crews camping out in extreme locations such as jungles, remote ocean beaches and deserts to bring some of the world’s wilder events and competitions to a UK audience.
Freesports on 4 has also nurtured new presenting talent and has been the launching pad for the likes of Ed Leigh (BBC Ski Sunday), AJ Adudu (E4’s Dirty Digest) and Tim Warwood (Dave’s Red Bull X Fighters).
Whether it’s live OBs, challenging foreign shoots or producing in extreme locations, Freesports on 4 has allowed BOOM to become a European leader in all things action sports.
