PokerStars Brings User Interaction to Poker TV with Play Along App

What’s arguably the #1 feature of poker on TV?

Accessibility.

Sports fans may never be able to go one-on-one with Lebron James or shelf a wrister on Henrik Lundqvist but they sure as hell can 3-Bet a famous TV pro. Or, at the very least, make fun of the way they play pocket jacks.

Well PokerStars is going one step farther with its new Poker Play Along app that actually lets players interact with TV poker programming.

During every PokerStars TV broadcast, such as an EPT or Shark Cage, players will be able to actually play along during certain segments.

It’s perfect for poker as you’ll finally get to guess what the correct play in certain situations would be whether it’s call, raise or fold.

PokerStars Offers Cash Freerolls for Play Along Leaders

Although the concept of interactive TV has existed for years it’s never really caught on except for shows like American Idol and The Voice, where viewers vote on the ultimate outcomes of the competitions.

The PokerStars Poker Play Along app will give users another level of interaction with the chance to compete with their friends in weekly leaderboards.

The next chance to play along live will be when the next episode of EPT London debuts later this week but there are also plans to add past-episode functionality so you can go back and watch previous episodes on YouTube or PokerStars.tv.

It’s not just for fun either as PokerStars has actually thrown in some cold-hard cash as an incentive to play along. Earn enough points by using the Poker Play Along app and you’ll be entered into an exclusive weekly freeroll with $500 up for grabs.

The app is 100% free and now available on both the iTunes and Google Play stores.
