Do you ever just stop and think, “man, I wish I could watch poker for 24 hours straight.” If you’re a normal person, then probably not.
But, if you do wish there was a way for it to be possible to watch poker matches and have them more easily accessible, you’re in luck!
Theta Labs, the creator of Theta.tv, is in works with the World Poker Tour to create a streaming channel that will have an “always-on” approach to showing poker.
“Theta Labs and WPT are innovators in our respective industries and this global partnership will provide our users with a new, ground-breaking way to watch the best televised poker product in the world, all powered by our peer-to-peer Theta blockchain technology, We’re looking forward to deeper integration of the Theta Network within WPT.” – CEO of Theta Labs, Mitch Liu
Who is Theta Labs?
Okay, but who exactly is Theta Labs? Are they poker experts?
No, not exactly poker experts, but they are experts in the world of streaming.
Theta Labs, or Theta.tv, is best known for being a streaming channel that has a network with its own blockchain. This is designed to incentivize people to share bandwidth.
Theta.tv is a p2p network that is working to help with the issues of VDN’s having little to no reach in lesser developed countries.
This is a move down by Theta Labs in an attempt to broaden their horizons outside fo their traditional esports market. Expanding a portfolio is by no means out of the ordinary for companies. While I’m not exactly sure why they started with poker, I’m definitely not going to complain about it!
During this time of pandemic in the world right now, streaming services and virtual playing of games will only become more and more important.
The Wrap Up
So, now we have another streaming platform to be able to enjoy poker. We will be able to us Theta.tv to watch the following:
- World Poker Tour Seasons VIII through XVI
- WPT Alpha8 Seasons I-III
- WPT Greatest Season I-III
- King of the Club
Hopefully, we continue to see a rise in streaming content that compliments fans of the online gambling world.
