Where can I watch the Travis Pastrana Evel Knievel jumps?

It's not just for the colonials to watch: you can see it in the UK too...

Where can I watch the Travis Pastrana Evel Knievel jumps?

BACK IN the 1970s millions would crowd around their TVs to see Evel Knievel break records or break bones and History is doing the same this weekend with the three-hour live special that will see Travis Pastrana attempt to replicate Evel’s greatest hits on an Indian FTR750.

We’ve talked about it before – here,hereand here– but while American readers will be able to tune in to ‘Evel Live’ at 8pm ET on Sunday, History’s UK arm isn’t running a concurrent live broadcast. For a start, it will be 1am on Monday morning in the UK when the event gets started, so you’d need to be a rabid Knievel or Pastrana fan to stay up for it. As it turns out, if you try, you’ll be greeted instead with some documentaries about ships.

But never fear, because here in the UK, History is showing the full three hours of ‘Evel Live’ at the much more civilised time of 9pm on Monday night (9 July). It’s on channel 130 on Sky, channel 270 on Virgin, and channel 327 on BT TV or TalkTalk.
