Intro to Poker Live Streaming
There's never been a better time to get loads and loads of grade-A poker video content online.
Whether it’s live streams, VODS (Video on Demand), Twitch streams, YouTube or even online poker networks there is pretty much something for everyone and, generally, it's all 100% free.
Here a quick primer on the various ways that you can stream poker content on the web right now.
Poker Tournament Live Streams
Live streams are a viable way to watch poker tournaments and cash games play out as live (usually with a very small delay to protect game integrity).
PokerStars Live is the flagship product in the live stream segment with amazing production values. The platform regularly features some of the biggest tournaments in the world with the best poker pros putting their skills on display.
In order to promote the EPT and various other tournaments and one-offs, PokerStars has spent a considerable amount of money creating a very polished product.
The best thing is that all these live streams are free of charge and available for streaming nearly everywhere in the world. In fact, the entire PokerStars video archive is available on PokerStars.tv.
PokerStars Live is hardly the only product in this segment, however, and companies like Poker Central, Poker Night in America, Crown Casino’s Aussie Millions and the Seminole Hard Rock have all produced exceptional live poker content.
Twitch Poker is the newcomer in the poker live streaming world but in just a few short years it’s pretty much transformed poker strategy and entertainment.
Jason “Jcarver” Somerville essentially pioneered the Twitch space with a wildly entertaining stream that focuses on running it up and he’s already built a legion of fervent fans.
Jaime “PokerStaples” Staples, Parker “TonkaaaaP” Talbot, Randy “Nanonoko” Lew are a few of the other regulars on the Twitch train.
Twitch is not just for individuals, however, and Unibet Poker has run a number of successful events via the platform.

YouTube and VODS
Twitch isn’t the only site that provides live streaming.
It’s not quite as well known but YouTube also offers support for live content and there are a number of content creators (perhaps most famously Joey “ChicagoJoey” Ingram) who release videos on the site.
YouTube is also a prime spot for VODs. Most live stream content creators put their videos up on YouTube once the stream is complete, so anyone can watch them at any time.
Unfortunately quite a few videos on YouTube are posted illegally and are low quality versions of the actual thing. On the bright side most major poker companies have either embraced YouTube or at least put their videos somewhere everybody can watch them.
YouTube alternatives like Vimeo, Daily Motion and Viddler also offer a small amount of poker content.
