January 12, 2010 (PAP PR Wire) – On Sunday, Canadian 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 Score Television Network is airing the weekly poker news program every Sunday from January 10th through February 14th in their weekend prime time slots of 15:00 EST and 17:30EST for the remainder of the run of season.
“Seebs” and Huff made the transition from radio to television at the helm of Poker2Nite in November last year on Fox Sports Net (“FSN”). Now entering the second half of the thirteen-week series, the show has found its stride amongst discerning television audiences, and Canadian poker fanatics can enjoy all the week’s breaking news from the world of live and online poker.
With the launch of Poker2Nite on The Score, the poker news program expands its reach beyond Fox Sports Net and outside of America. The Score Television Network is a national Sports Network, delivering news, information and live event Sports programming to more than 6.6 million Canadian homes.
UB.net continues to celebrate the growing popularity of the weekly show that deals out the inside scoop on the poker world by giving away a pair of UB WSOP Pro Packages in their free to play online poker promotion, the Poker2Nite Pro Challenge.
