Poker Central, CBS Announce Live-Streaming Partnership for Dozens of 2019 WSOP Events

Poker Central and CBS have announced a partnership that will bring ingstream final-table coverage to 41 of this summer’s 2019 World Series of Poker events. The agreement will bring the 41 WSOP final tables to a video-on-demand (VOD) audience throughout the WSOP, with broadcasts appearing on both CBS’s All Access and Poker Central’s PokerGO services, plus additional outlets.

The 41 final tables to be streamed (full list below) begin on May 30, 2019 and wrap up on July 16, 2019. Many of the streams are likely to join the final tables in progress, with perhaps six players remaining. The schedule includes one final table per day with the exception of July 5-10, when the Rio Convention Center is wholly devoted to Days 1 and 2 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event, which is separately broadcast by ESPN.

The Poker Central – CBS partnership calls for 25 of the 41 events covered to be streamed on CBS All Access, CBS’s subscription video on demand and live streaming service. CBS Sports Network will air highlight shows drawn from these 25 CBS-exclusive bracelet events. Eight more final tables will appear exclusively on PokerGO, while the remaining eight final-table streams will appear on both, allowing subscribers some flexibility. Highlights will also be available on CBSSports.com, the CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the network’s around-the-clock streaming sports news network.

Veterans Lon McEachern, Ali Nejad, and David Tuchman will share duties behind the mic, also being joined by a rotating cast of well own poker pros providing extra color commentary.

“The World Series of Poker, which is the pinnacle of the game, will be a fantastic addition to our digital and cable channels,” said Dan Weinberg, Executive Vice President of Programming, CBS Sports. “We’re very pleased to bring this engaging content to poker fans across platforms.”

“The reach and position of CBS across digital and cable platforms make this the perfect partnership for reaching devoted fans and new audiences,” said Sam Simmons, President of Poker Central. “This summer’s WSOP bracelet event coverage will further our ongoing strategy of expanding distribution of the most exciting live poker events.”
