Fox Sports puts cards on the table with World Poker Tour

The Fox Sports division of the US network has sealed a long-term rights deal for the World Poker Tour.

The deal will run for five years, from 2016 to 2020.

In addition to five seasons of the World Poker Tour, the tour will produce 13 additional hours of original programming each season for Fox.

Fox Sports’ regional networks will also broadcast at least two World Poker Tour marathons each season, beginning with the first-ever Labor Day Marathon in 2016. WPT broadcasts are also available for live streaming on the Fox Sports Go digital platform.
