|One of the industry’s leading skill game providers GameAccount Global Ltd has announced that it will be collaborating with Pokerzone to bring live Backgammon to television sets around the world via www.pokerzone.tv, the global Poker and gaming lifestyle channel available via satellite, cable and broadband television.|
The partnership will see Pokerzone using live in-game footage taken from GameAccount’s brand and destination site WorldGammon.com to stimulate interest in the classic parlour game. Each episode on Pokerzone (Sky Channel 843) will be 3 hours in length, for an initial run of 12 episodes, with additional repeats every weekend starting in October.
Kevin Dale, GameAccount CEO commented: “This fantastic opportunity marks another successful venture into television for the company.”
Pokerzone’s history in televising Backgammon includes hosting the world’s first televised match play Backgammon event, in addition to a series of lifestyle documentaries surrounding the ‘Sport of Kings’ in 2005.
“GameAccount’s successful online Backgammon network and brand allowed us to make an informed choice of partnership for continuing with high quality and entertaining Backgammon programming on Pokerzone,” said Pokerzone CEO, Jim Sibcy.
