The World Poker Tour has rolled-out a distribution agreement with the Fubo Sports Network, which will make tournament coverage viewable from nearly any device in the US and Canada.
The live, free-to-consumer TV network from sports-first live TV streaming platform fuboTV is set to feature recent WPT tournaments from Las Vegas, Paris, Barcelona and more, spanning over 10 seasons, as well as archived events from its main stops.
“The rich history of the World Poker Tour is something that we continually strive to share with all poker fans,” said Johnny McMahon, vice president of WPT Studios.
“With Fubo Sports Network, viewers can catch classic WPT action on fuboTV or on the many Fubo Sports Networks distribution partners, including Roku Channels, Samsung TV Plus, Vizio Channels and more.”
This latest collaboration comes in the midst of the launch of WPT Season XX, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the World Poker Tour.
“We are eager to crack open the vault of WPT tournament history to share with the poker world,” said Adam Pliska, WPT CEO.
“We are not stopping there. We will supplement with regular additions of new WPT tournament coverage from Season XX and beyond.”
