December 23rd, 2009 (PAP PR Wire) – Last week, European audiences got their first taste of the UB.net sponsored Poker2Nite television show, fronted by Team UB Pro Joe Sebok and longtime poker journalist Scott Huff. The Poker Channel Europe is now airing episodes of the hot new weekly poker news program every Wednesday at 22:00 CET for the run of season. Miss it the first time, or not yet had your fill of the talented PokerRoad duo, and you can catch it again on Thursdays and Saturdays at 16:00 CET on Europe’s largest dedicated gaming TV network.
“Seebs” and Huff made the transition from radio to television at the helm of Poker2Nite last month on Fox Sports Net (“FSN”). Now entering week five of the series, the show is really hitting its stride amongst audiences, enjoying a growing legion of loyal followers from week to week as the show settles into its timeslot, and as the co-anchors have become more dazzling in front of the camera.
With the Poker Channel Europe launch, Poker2Nite viewer figures are set to skyrocket, as the Wednesday night poker news program expands its reach outside of America, and is now available online to a global audience and to more than 18 million cable and satellite homes across Europe.
UB.net celebrates the rise of the weekly show that delivers the inside scoop on the poker world by giving away a pair of UB WSOP Pro Packages in their new free to play online poker promotion, the Poker2Nite Pro Challenge.
