San Jose, CA – Theta Labs today announced a new global distribution deal with World Poker Tour® to launch an ‘always-on’, 24/7 poker live channel on THETA.tv, a next-generation Esports entertainment platform built on the Theta blockchain, the leading decentralized video delivery network.
THETA.tv users around the globe are now able to access classic WPT programming such as World Poker Tour Seasons VIII through XVI, WPT Alpha8 Seasons I through III, WPT Greatest Seasons I through II, and King of the Club Season I. In addition, THETA.tv will feature live 2020-2021 poker events and tournaments held at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas and elsewhere, all through an ‘always-on’ 24/7 live channel that users can enjoy from any device including web, mobile and smart TVs.
By streaming the 24/7 live channel, THETA.tv introduces WPT as the first major content partner outside of the Esports category, featuring a genre that fits THETA.tv’s global audience extremely well. The partnership reflects THETA.tv’s plans to broaden its content portfolio and offer its users with relevant, meaningful programming outside of traditional esports content. For the first time, users can earn TFUEL token rewards for sharing their excess bandwidth while watching premium WPT poker content. Theta blockchain’s innovative approach to user rewards drives higher engagement and user retention, while sharing the benefits with viewers who can earn as much as $15/month just for watching.
“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,” said Mitch Liu, Co-founder and CEO of Theta Labs. “We’re looking forward to deeper integration of the Theta Network within WPT.”
“The World Poker Tour is excited to be featured on THETA.tv powered by the Theta Blockchain, an innovator in the fast-growing video streaming space” said Adam Pliska, CEO of the World Poker Tour. “As THETA.tv and the Theta Network grows in size, we look forward to offering additional assets and programming on the platform in the upcoming future.”
