Poker Central launched PokerGO, a subscription service that will provide on-demand programming for poker's biggest events, like the World Series of Poker and Super High Roller Bowl, May 22.
“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.”
The service costs $99 annually or $10 monthly and can be accessed at PokerGO.com.
PokerGO will provide exclusive coverage of the WSOP, giving viewers a glimpse of the untelevised Main Event moments, the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop and dozens of other bracelet events this summer.
Beyond the summer's festivities at the World Series of Poker and the Super High Roller Bowl, PokerGO will also expand into weekly high-stakes cash games and later premiere poker events.
PokerGO already has original programming planned, including "Dead Money: A Super High Roller Bowl Story," a documentary mini-series about Matt Berkey's 2016 Super High Roller Bowl experience; and "Pokerography," a series looking at the greatest poker professionals in the game and their backstories.
“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 of Poker Productions, in a release. “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.”
The service will also host the classics, playing "Poker After Dark," "Face the Ace," "Doubles Poker Championship" and more.
