Poker Central partners with CBS to extend the coverage of the World Series of Poker to more eyeballs than ever before.

CBS partners with Poker Central to air WSOP bracelet eventsLook into the rearview mirror at the coverage of the World Series of Poker (WSOP), and the picture is bleak. For years, broadcasters shunned the pinnacle of poker privilege with fans restricted to the highlight reel, but all that changed in 2017 when Poker Central acquired global rights.

Today, when the WSOP sprints into Vegas like a greyhound on heat the fans expect nothing more than top-notch live stream coverage, and expert commentary and analysis, and for those living in North America and Australia there is a special treat this year.

Poker Central has partnered with CBS to extend the coverage of the WSOP to even more eyeballs. The 4 million subscribers who pay for CBS All Access will receive 25 days of coverage, eight days will be exclusive to PokerGO, with eight days shown across both platforms. Also, CBS Sports Network will air highlight shows, as will CBSSports.com, the CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ.

Dan Weinberg, Executive Vice President of Programming, CBS Sports, called the WSOP “the pinnacle of the game,” and said he was “pleased” to bring poker’s iconic poker festival to fans across the CBS platforms. Sam Simmons, President of Poker Central, noted that the reach and position of CBS across the globe made them the “perfect partner” for Poker Central.

Commentators Lon McEachern, Ali Nejad and David Tuchman will deliver the action helped by a rotating cast of pros.
