TSN to Carry Live Broadcasts of 2017 WSOP Main Event
After we learned last month that TSN wouldn’t carry any of the live World Series of Poker (WSOP) broadcasts this year, they’ve now worked coverage of the world’s premier poker event into their scheduling.
As usual, ESPN will be creating televised content during the WSOP Main Event this July and, also as usual, TSN carries the rights to that content in Canada. TSN broadcasts across five cable channels and their TSN GO app.
Originally saying there wouldn’t be room for the WSOP due to coverage of the Canadian Football League, Major League Baseball, and Sportscentre, TSN has now found a place on their network for the WSOP in July. Here is where you’ll be able to watch the 2017 WSOP in Canada:
