Last week, many were left in the dark when Poker Central announced its partnership with the WSOP and said that live coverage will be broadcasted on ESPN but anything that will not air on ESPN was to be streamed “exclusively through Poker Central’s digital distribution channels.” Well now the veil has been lifted.
After a week of speculation, Poker Central has announced the launch of their on-demand subscription service, PokerGo. It is a paid subscription service that will feature many of poker’s biggest live events, such as the World Series of Poker and the Super High Roller Bowl, which are both kicking off this summer. It’ll also provide on-demand coverage of original contents throughout the year.
PokerGo will aim to provide poker enthusiast a one stop shop to enjoy coverage of the biggest poker tournaments around the world and high stakes cash games. Starting off this summer will be two massive events, the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl and the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop, and also more than a dozen other WSOP bracelet events throughout the summer.
In addition to live tournament coverage will be original programming like:
- ➤ Classic programming – Poker After Dark, Face the Ace, Doubles Poker Championship
- ➤ Dead Money – A Super High Roller Bowl Story – A compelling documentary miniseries profiling the underdog story of 2016 Super High Roller Bowl final tablist Matt Berkey
- ➤ Pokerography – An in-depth series looking into the lives of some of the greatest poker professionals to ever play the game. Each episode will feature detailed interviews from poker’s greatest champions as they reveal their fascinating backstories while interviews with family, friends, rivals and expert analysts dig deep into their legacies
“PokerGO will offer the best live and on-demand poker tournaments and content for the fiercely passionate poker fan and casual enthusiast alike – whenever and wherever they want them,” said JR McCabe, chief digital officer of Poker Central, in a release. “By pairing PokerGO with our existing network television partnerships, we will offer unique and original programming to the largest potential global audience.”
PokerGo is available now for an annual subscription cost of $99, or a monthly pass of $10.
