|Jonny Texas Productions has announced it will launch its new poker network from studios in Birmingham this April. The network will air on Sky TV Channel 187 for two hours every weekday evening and will feature shows from the UK and European poker scene, including news, tournaments, live updates, and interviews with major poker players and celebrities.|
The launch is a further indicator of success for the Jonny Texas enterprise, which incorporates a highly-successful online poker room (jonnytexaspoker.com), currently attracting up to 6,500 players from around the world; as well as a merchandising company which meets a worldwide demand for 'Jonny Texas' branded poker products.
'The poker scene is enormous, both across the UK and worldwide,' explained Birmingham-born poker star, Jonny Texas. 'The launch of a television network dedicated entirely to poker is the next logical step in the development of the business. The timing of the programming is ideal for people returning from an evening out, and the content is aimed at poker and gaming enthusiasts as well as to a general audience.'
