The World Poker Tour® today announced a new distribution deal with BitMovio, a next generation gamified video entertainment streaming service enabled by blockchain technology. By broadcasting Seasons’ XII and XIII, WPT will join BitMovio’s more than 700 hours of content available for distribution with its Beta product launching.

The announcement comes on the heels of the recent WPT partnership agreement with BT Sport, who are featuring WPT Season XV broadcasts across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

BitMovio’s decentralized streaming platform enables content creators/owners, consumers, and financiers to transparently, and instantaneously, exchange value and attention.  Backed by top-tier venture capital firms in Silicon Valley, New York and Boston, BitMovio is on a mission to disrupt the video entertainment industry’s centralized content distribution and financing model.

“The video streaming industry continues to grow in prominence and the World Poker Tour is proud to air its television show on BitMovio, a new industry force,” Adam Pliska, CEO of the World Poker Tour, said. “We are thrilled to enable BitMovio viewers the opportunity to enjoy episodes of the World Poker Tour from wherever they may reside across the globe.”

“WPT is excited to partner with BitMovio and be a part of their Beta launch. As BitMovio grows in size, we look forward to offering additional assets on the platform in the upcoming future,” said Johnny McMahon, VP of WPT Studios.

“BitMovio and WPT are innovators in their respective industries and the match between our companies will provide consumers with the optimal way to watch the best televised poker product available in the world,” said Simon Zhu, Co-founder and CEO of BitMovio.
