PokerGO is the premier platform for watching poker content these days. And the subscription-based app is continuing to grow.
Poker Central launched a 24/7 poker network in 2015, along with its first original programming, the $500,00 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl (won by Brian Rast for $7.5 million).
The Poker Central network, which was available on streaming devices such as Roku, was founded by Cary Katz, a businessman and poker enthusiast. You’ve probably seen Katz competing in numerous high roller events over the years.
At first, along with the inaugural Super High Roller Bowl ($300,000 buy-in in future years), most of Poker Central’s content was old poker shows you could watch on YouTube. and you had to sit through numerous commercials. But the company quickly evolved and began adding more original programming.
In 2017, Poker Central launched the PokerGO app, a fee-based service without any ads. In short time, it became the premium poker content app, and is the main place to watch all your favorite poker shows, including the WSOP.
Poker a click away
So, what exactly can you watch on PokerGO? An endless supply of new and old poker programming, including the most popular poker shows of all-time (High Stakes Poker, Poker After Dark, etc.).
Poker Central releases new shows and clips every week. You can watch every show on-demand, whenever you’d like, and no need to DVR anything. The programming on PokerGO includes new episodes of your favorite shows, along with a massive supply of old-school favorites. Every episode of High Stakes Poker, for example, is available on-demand. That includes the 2006-2011 Game Show Network shows and the PokerGO reboot season 8, which recently wrapped up.
New (and old) episodes of Poker After Dark are also available on PokerGO. For those who grew up watching the cash game show on NBC back in the day, you may not be aware that PokerGO brought it back a few years ago. And, yes, Ali Nejad is still the host.
Each summer, well except for 2020 (thanks, COVID-19), PokerGO airs live-stream footage from WSOP events. The poker app also has a partnership deal in place with ESPN for combined coverage of the WSOP Main Event.
PokerGO’s original programming is too extensive to list one-by-one (check out the app for a complete list), but some of the most popular shows include Dolly’s Game, a cash game show featuring poker legend Doyle Brunson, and the U.S. Poker Open and Poker Master’s, two annual high stakes poker series.
You will also find High Stakes Duel, a series of heads-up matches between Phil Hellmuth and Antonio Esfandiari in 2020. And on March 31, High Stakes Duel II between Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu.
The PokerGO app costs $14.99 per month, if paid monthly, or $29.99 for a three-month subscription, or $99.99 for an annual subscription. If you search around, you’ll find a promotional code for a discount.
