Poker Central Renews Key Partnerships

Poker Central has renewed partnerships with both 888Poker and the NBC Sports Group, announcing the deals in two separate press releases in the past week. Poker Central, having struggled to establish itself as a true 24/7 poker television network, has successfully revamped itself as an online digital video subscription service for poker. It surprised the poker world last year by cementing a deal with ESPN and the World Series of Poker to broadcast much of the WSOP via live streaming. Last week, Poker Central announced the renewal of its deal with 888poker that has the online poker room remain the “exclusive in-show sponsor in the real money online poker category” for the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl. 888Poker will also be part of the broadcasts of the U.S. Poker Open, Poker Masters, Poker After Dark, and the ARIA High Roller Series. On its end, 888Poker will run promos to give

Poker Central Adding to PokerGO’s Programming with New Show “Major Wager”

Since Poker Central came back with the rebirth of their streaming outlet as a subscription service known as PokerGO, there has been a concerted effort to increasing the amount of original programming that the station provides. With their latest endeavor, Poker Central and PokerGO are dipping their toes into a genre that, at least in regular network and cable television, has become a bit overdone. It was announced on Thursday that Poker Central and PokerGO will collaborate with Roundhead Creative for a five-episode reality series called Major Wager. The show, to be hosted by noted podcaster Joey Ingram, will take the viewers into world of proposition (or “prop”) betting. The show’s basic premise is that a group of contestants, with many coming from the poker world, will take part in performance-based prop bets. For the losers of those bets, majorly embarrassing punishments will be taped and aired as part of

Poker Central Introduces Poker Masters Tournament Series

The ARIA Resort & Casino has seemingly become the place to go in Las Vegas for a big tournament series if one can’t or does not want to play in the World Series of Poker at the Rio. And in a bit of unheralded news from a couple weeks ago – perhaps overshadowed by the WSOP and Poker Central’s need to promote its new subscription streaming service, PokerGO – Poker Central has announced that it will launch a new high stakes tournament series at the ARIA in September. The Poker Masters will run for a week, from September 13th through September 20th. Unlike many week-long poker festivals that try to fit in as many tournaments as possible, the Poker Masters will consist of just five events, but that is because of the hefty price tag on each: four $ 50,000 buy-in events and one $ 100,000 buy-in event. The $

Poker Central to Resurrect “Poker After Dark”

Poker Central has announced that it will be bringing back one of the most popular poker television shows, “Poker After Dark.” It will be broadcast live only on Poker Central’s PokerGO subscription service beginning Monday, August 7th. “PokerGO’s vast content library will now include the return of one of the most beloved poker shows in the world as we continue our commitment to delivering premium live content our subscribers want to see,” said Poker Central president Joe Kakaty in a press release. “We plan to announce additional high stakes tournaments and original programming in the near future as we continue to build on the PokerGO offering.” “Poker After Dark” debuted on New Year’s Day 2007, a time when online poker site-sponsored poker television was all the rage. Sponsored by the then-high flying Full Tilt Poker, the show featured six players – mostly Full Tilt pros or pros with close ties

Poker Central Signs Distribution Deal With NBC

After dropping their own efforts at cable broadcasting to start 2017, the streaming network Poker Central has signed a deal for cable television and distribution with NBC and in particular NBCUniversal Sports. For those looking for Poker Central to fire up content on NBCSN (formerly known as the NBC Sports Network) immediately, it is going to be a bit. According to Variety’s Todd Spangler, the first programming to come from Poker Central will be the third rendition of the Super High Roller Bowl. The $ 300,000 event will be run May 28-31 at Aria in Las Vegas and NBCSN will be its cable broadcast home. Both sides were complimentary of each other with the announcement of the deal. “Partnering with Poker Central allows us to continue to deliver high-quality programming, while creating a destination for both existing and new poker fans alike,” Gary Quinn, the Vice President of programming at
