Wanna open a card room? (Roy Houghton)
Wanna donate to starting an on-line card room? (Dave Welsh & friends)

There have been many discussions on this, and other poker related threads, over the past while and while its fair to say that anyone wanting to put their money into an on-line poker site these days has missed the proverbial boat there is one area that has yet to be exploited that would instantly, in my opinion, create a cash-cow for its owners and supporters...

POKER TV

It costs around 1.5M to open up your own TV station channel, on SKY TV.

Providing poker TV for all us addicts for 8-9 hours a night (7pm-4am) under a subscription basis would be an absolute BRILLIANT IDEA!

Just think...reruns of ALL the WSOP tapes that ESPN has locked away in its safe, the WPT at the SAME TIME as those American folk, LIVE coverage of poker in card rooms throughout Europe.

An example of a typical nights programming would be...

7pm Opening credits
7.15pm LIVE report from some cardroom hosting that nights featured tournament
7.30pm WPT - Aruba
9.30pm Back for an update from featured cardroom
9.45pm Travel featuring some exotic cardroom or Grosvenors in Southampton
10.30pm Late Night Poker (Series 1 episode 5)
12 midnight - LIVE final table of featured tournament using under the table technology to see players whol cards (Commentary by Barny Boatman & Jesse May!)
2am WPT - Aruba (rerun)
4am CLOSE

So why doesn't someone do something about this..1.5M is peanuts!!
