The 2016 World Series of Poker begins its seven-week run from June to July. The series now includes 69-events and will run from June 1st to July 18th. The final table of the 2016 WSOP main event will be completed from October 30th to November 1st as the event is completed live on ESPN. During the entire series, ESPN will own the coverage. In previous years, it would broadcast weekly episodes to update fans on all the action and it seems like that is what will be in store this year. You can check the WSOP schedule to find out more about the broadcasts. If you’d like to watch the WSOP live stream, this is the guide for you!
ESPN is normally seen as a cable channel, but it can actually be watched easily and legally without paying for a cable package. There are multiple streaming options out there to watch a WSOP live stream and you can even watch some of the action for free. Read on to learn about all of your options!
Watch WSOP Streaming on Sling TV
Our favorite cable alternative and way to watch a World Series of Poker live stream is Sling TV. Dish Network offers the subscription streaming service for only $20 per month. There is no contract required, so you can cancel at any time.
You get access to live streams of popular cable channels over tons of different devices including mobile devices, tablets, and connected devices for streaming on your TV. You can actually get a free Roku device if you sign up for three months of Sling TV. The retail price of a Roku is $70, so you basically get it for $10 off and Sling TV as a free added bonus. It’s an awesome way to watch a WSOP live stream right on the big screen.
The Sling TV (review) starting package has more than 20 cable channels available to stream. These channels include ESPN, ESPN2, TBS, TNT, CNN, AMC, and several more. You can also access ESPN network channels like ESPN3 or ESPNU by logging into WatchESPN with your Sling TV credentials. You can start watching Sling TV free now with the 7-day free trial.
Another awesome deal for Sling TV is only available to T-Mobile customers. If you have T-Mobile, you only have to pay $14 per month for Sling TV (30% off). The price is good for a year, but does not require any contract. And, with T-Mobile’s Binge On feature you can watch Sling TV and WSOP streaming on your phone without it impacting your data.
Subscribe to PlayStation Vue to Watch a WSOP Live Stream
PlayStation Vue is another great way to watch the whole WSOP schedule of events. ESPN is included in the basic package, which costs $29.99 a month. In addition to ESPN, other featured channels are ESPN2, TNT, TBS, FX, FS1, Comedy Central, and about 50 more. You also get similar access to WatchESPN as you do with Sling TV, so there is even more content available there with your PlayStation Vue login.
You can watch a World Series of Poker live stream with iPads, iPhones, PlayStation Consoles, Chromecast, or Amazon Fire TV.
