Poker TV Guide launches interactive poker TV listings - Friday 12th of August 2005

Poker has literally exploded this year and every day professional players and upcoming amateurs can be seen battling it out on TV. But on which channel, and when? With more and more airtime dedicated to the worlds new favorite past time it has grown increasingly difficult for poker fans to keep up. This is where the new service Poker TV Guide steps in.

Poker TV-Guide founder and CEO Markus Sonermo had the following to say: "I love poker and I love watching it on TV, but with so many channels to choose from its hard for me to keep up with when what show is on. Our service sort of grew out of a self-need to solve this problem -- something which we feel it has done brilliantly."

Support for the US, UK and Sweden is already in place and many more countries are in the works. "Maybe in a few years our service wont even be needed anymore. The way poker is growing everyday it wouldnt surprise me if every show on TV will be about poker in one way or another eventually," added Poker TV Guide director of marketing and self proclaimed poker TV fanatic Martin Dabrowski, tongue-in-cheek.

In addition to TV listings Poker TV Guide also features rss feeds free of charge for other web sites wishing to provide their visitors with poker related TV listings.
