PokerGO's legendary streaming service is expanding into YouTube TV adding more potential for growth over the coming years.

PokerGO have been at the forefront of many of poker’s most recent televised poker moments. With the World Series of Poker in the summer still fresh in the memory, PokerGO have a great deal of good feeling from fans who have enjoye their roving reporter style pieces from presenters such as Jeff Platt and Remko Rinkema as much as they’ve enjoyed in-game commentary.

A New World of Poker Content

PokerGO has changed poker’s annual content and the World Series of Poker barely scratches the surface on what they offer. For an annual fee of $99, a subscription to PokerGO now means you can access their poker content all year round for the price of a decent meal in Las Vegas on the Strip.

This year alone, the poker streaming site have screened new shows such as the popular No Gamble, No Future featuring Platt and Brent Hanks in tandem, one of the most popular duos on screen this year.

PokerGO have also signed ‘Boston Rob’ Mariano and the Global PokerGO Ambassador will shortly be taking part in a game that is free to play during the Friday Hangout on the PokerGO app along with ‘Golfer’ Josh Arieh. In fact, win the Sit N Go and you’ll even get a FREE Boston Rob signed hat!

An Expansion in YouTube Territory

With PokerGO’s forays into streamed poker tournaments already huge, the offerings this year have been plentiful for poker fans too. High Stakes Poker has returned to some aplomb, and with shows such as Poker After Dark also available in its entirety on the platform, as well as deep-dish documentaries into the history of poker, PokerGO has become a go-to platform for more than the most dedicated viewers. Casual fans can pick it up easily too and aren’t putting it down.

This month, PokerGO announced that they’ll be available direct through YouTube TV and the YouTube Primetime television channel, after an expansion of their partnership with the global video streaming service was agreed. You Tube, it goes without saying, has become one of the most powerful broadcast outlets in the past two decades since its invention.

What does it mean for PokerGO subscribers? Well, from now on, YouTube and YouTube TV subscribers have the option to watch live and on-demand PokerGO shows if they’ve either purchased them directly or are a subscriber. This access to the world’s best poker content as if it is a full television channel will make it easier for more poker fans to be able to watch their favorite shows. It’s not just the future of poker, but likely television too.

Poker’s Biggest Players “Will Be Showcased”

“The expanded deal means that poker’s best players, biggest events, and greatest moments will be showcased to more fans.”

The expansion of what PokerGO offer to fans is one that has pleased Mori Eskandani, President of PokerGO.

“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with YouTube and offer the full PokerGO service directly through YouTube TV and Primetime Channels,” he said. “PokerGO is home to the most-watched live and on-demand poker content across the globe and is committed to growing the game. The expanded deal means that poker’s best players, biggest events, and greatest moments will be showcased to more fans than ever before, and YouTube members who subscribe to the PokerGO channel will enjoy a top-tier viewing experience and unrivaled access to the game of poker.”

Primetime Channels will give viewers the chance to sign up and watch sports, movies and of course poker on over 30 streaming services. With online streaming and YouTube bigger than ever before, access to the content has never been better, with viewers able to sign up and watch shows such as Super High Roller Bowl, the Poker Masters, the U.S. Poker Open, the PokerGO Cup, High Stakes Poker, No Gamble, No Future, and High Stakes Duel on their phone, tablet or smart television.

Signing up to YouTube TV even gives subscribers the chance to download to unlimited DVR storage space, too, as well as a personalized watch list packed with recommendations and a family plan to boot. Poker is closer than ever before.
