A new app from PokerStars promises to bring the best of live and online poker to (almost) everyone's living room, as the world's largest online poker site announced the launch an application for the latest version of the Apple TV.
Using an opportunity offered by Apple with the introduction of a new Apple TV-dedicated AppStore, PokerStars launched an app that allows users to watch great poker videos on their televisions.
Available for free on Apple TV's AppStore, PokerStars.tv features broadcasts from the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, the European Poker Tour, and all of PokerStars' big online action.
This isn't PokerStars' first official attempt to enter the living room through the TV screen as Canadians will be familiar with the PokerStars.net NHL Alumni Charity Poker Tournament aired annually on Sportsnet. And the PokerStars.tv app is something that many players are already familiar with, since the content on the app could be already accessed from the PokerStars.tv website as well as from the free apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android.
To download the app you need to have access to fourth generation Apple TV (released in Oct. 2015) and find the PokerStars.tv app in the AppStore.
