CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PokerVision Media Inc (the Company), is pleased to provide a corporate update and outline of its business plans for 2019. Since its last press release, the Company entered into an agreement to vend its assets from ePlay Digital and now operates as an independent corporate entity.  This was completed in 2017 and since, the Company has rebuilt its business plan, met numerous benchmarks towards its network launch and raised working capital to continue growing its operations. The Company is undertaking an Initial Public Offering to meet its capitalization requirements and streamline its digital media, eSports and poker broadcast strategy.

  • Opened new head offices in Calgary
  • Expanded TV production team
  • Broadcasted content through nesting of PokerVision programming in the US with the Action Network in over 22 million households
  • Launched new programming including sports handicapping show “GameChangerz” on digital media platforms
  • Created new revenue streams through sports affiliate partnerships, programming sponsorship and commercial sales
  • Built new digital platforms to support the full launch of the global TV Network
  • Completed interim financing to invest into broadcast and corporate infrastructure prior to IPO

The Company has several upcoming announcements in the following areas of business development all currently in process:

  • Opening new studios and production center in Calgary
  • Producing 2 new original production series for its own network and syndication
  • Launching OTT (Over The Top) Digital Streaming Platform
  • Completing the first of several eSports company acquisitions
  • Securing Official Broadcast Partner status with multiple eSports and Poker events
  • Launching new revenue models for existing programming targeting Canadian and US sports betting markets through affiliate and sponsorship agreements
  • Relaunching its Canadian Poker Tour asset with nationally televised events
  • Obtaining licensing in the US and Canada to monetize its media assets in the sports gaming and eSports markets
  • Completing its IPO on the Canadian Securities Exchange

Management believes 2019 will be a strong year for the Company as its impending OTT digital network launch, new public listing and eSports division will be driving forces for growth.  The opportunities with new government regulation of sports betting in the US and resurgence of poker revenues through its events division will help PokerVision become a leader as a next generation media company.
