Heads Up Entertainment International, Inc., a media company in the field of online poker televising, will be rolling out a new online poker channel in early March, just shortly after the 2010 Winter Olympics end. The channel will be known as CandadianPokerPlayer.tv, and its content will be primarily based on various poker tournaments around Canada as well as poker-related content created over the last three years along with a raft of original shows and features.
Heads Up promises that Canadian poker fans will be able to select from a wide variety of games, tournaments and commentary on a round-the-clock basis. The new channel will focus primarily on Canadian poker and intends to devote special attention to the Heads Up matches taking place at the Canadian Poker Tour, the country's elite tournament that attracts a wealth of pros from all points on the map.
The coming advent of CandadianPokerPlayer.tv holds out the possibility that online viewers will be able to focus live on their favorite poker pros as they go for the winning hand at many of the big tournaments. As a way of putting a bright light on this most popular of card games, Heads Up believes the online content it will be delivering to viewers will attract ever more fans and enthusiasts to online poker.
Online poker rooms have been growing in popularity as the Internet has become increasingly commonplace in many households. Heads Up will be featuring many of the top pros, including Phil Helmuth, Jennifer Tilly and Antonio Esfandiari, all of whom it hopes to showcase to an audience of over 3.5 million Canadian poker players and many more millions of global online poker fans.
