Televised Coverage of the WSOP on ESPN and TSN Starts Tonight

ESPN and TSN televised coverage of WSOP

As the 2014 November Nine wake up to the summer of their lives, the World Series of Poker is only over for the players. For fans, in many ways, it is just beginning.

Starting tonight, ESPN begins airing it’s original coverage of the 2014 World Series of Poker.

While most of the press about ESPN coverage has focused on the Main Event, ESPN has been with the WSOP from the very beginning this year, starting it’s coverage with the WSOP National Championship final table filmed over the Memorial Day weekend.

Starting tonight, ESPN shows WSOP-bracelet-winners Dominik Nitsche, Matthew Ashton, and Athanasios Polychronopoulos facing off against the best of the WSOP Circuit qualifiers. Filmed in Atlantic City, for the first time ever the WSOP moved outdoors to film the final table against the backdrop of the Jersey Shore.

ESPN airs the two-episode final table back to back tonight for Americans, while Canadian viewers will have to wait until July 19 to catch the episodes on TSN at 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. ET, and again at 8:00 and 9:00 p.m.

ESPN coverage continues following a one week hiatus with a massive six hours of coverage of the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop charity tournament. Aired in three consecutive weeks as two-episode blocks, ESPN follows the huge charity event from start to finish as players combine to generate $4.6 million for One Drop, a charity that “strives to ensure that water is accessible to all, today and forever.”

On September 28, ESPN returns again with the first of seven consecutive Sunday nights of WSOP Main Event coverage. Join Norman Chad and Lon McEachern as they call all the action as 6,683 players try for the guaranteed first prize of $10 million. Main Event coverage culminates on November 10 and 11 with live coverage of the November Nine final table.

The full schedule for ESPN’s coverage of the 2014 WSOP can be seen below, as well as what has been put on the schedule for Canadian viewers so far on TSN starting July 19. We will update this list as more of the schedule is released.
