Poker Central has doubled down on OTT with the launch of PokerGo, a poker subscription service that will feature some poker’s biggest live events. The launch follows the company’s recent rights acquisition of the World Series of Poker and television distribution deals with NBC Sports Network and ESPN.
The service aims to serve as the preeminent destination for poker enthusiasts, showcasing the biggest tournaments and high stakes cash games in the world including the Super High Roller Bowl and the World Series of Poker (WSOP), both set to kick off this summer. WSOP coverage will include the untelevised hours of the Main Event, the $111,111 buy-in High Roller for One Drop, and more than a dozen other bracelet events throughout the summer. All PokerGO live events will be produced by their exclusive production partner, Poker Productions.
PokerGO original programming will include:
- “Dead Money: A Super High Roller Bowl Story” — A documentary mini-series 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 play the game.
- Classic programming including “Poker After Dark,” “Face the Ace,” “Doubles Poker Championship,” and more.
“Poker has continually evolved over the years as a thrilling, competitive live sport with millions of fans across the world yearning to watch more and more of the action,” said Mori Eskandani, founder, Poker Productions. “PokerGO’s planned combination of unprecedented live event coverage and premium original programming will make it the ideal service to entertain the poker world with every aspect of the game.”
There are two options to sign up for the service, a $99 annual subscription or a $10 monthly pass, and both can be accessed through www.PokerGO.com.
