Poker Central, the organizers of the Super High Roller Series and the only 24/7 poker television network in the world, has announced that professional poker player Maria Ho will host a new live, interactive show called “Poker Central with Maria Ho” on the network’s Twitch.tv channel.
Poker Central CEO Clint Stinchcomb said: “We are excited to welcome Maria Ho to Poker Central. As one of the best female poker pros in the world, her knowledge of the game, and her great personality and charm, make Maria a welcome addition to our team.”
The show will begin late this September and will give Twitch.tv viewers a chance to watch Maria playing online poker and interacting with fellow poker pros and celebrities. The aim of the show is to give poker fans a chance to learn Maria’s poker strategies and watch her spend quality poker time with poker personalities.
Clips from other Poker Central shows will form part of the Maria Ho show, and this will be accompanied by a commentary from Maria to give viewers a chance to find out more about Poker Central. The show will be streamed several times for several hours every week. Stinchcomb said: “Poker Central Live with Maria Ho will showcase new Poker Central talent and new programs, in a fun and interactive way, and allow poker fans to be a part of the action.”
Expressing her views, Maria said that she is excited about being part of the network’s “vision to drive and broadcast innovative programming through various platforms.” She expressed eagerness to interact with poker fans worldwide through Twitch.tv and give them a glimpse of poker culture.
Poker Central is using several methods to blend OTT and traditional TV. As Stinchcomb puts it, the network is being made available throughout the world via multiple platforms and will present a number of fun, interactive shows. He said that Poker Central Live with Maria Ho is only one example of how the network aims to utilize social networking sites to promote its product.
