This week Caesars Entertainment announced that they've signed television group CBS Sports Network to become the US Television Partner of the World Series of Poker.

The deal will see CBS broadcasting 15 hours of the Main Event this year as well as 36 hours of various events throughout the rest of this year. The shows will be aired on the CBS Sports Network, but will also be made available via streaming platforms like Paramount+. The two groups had previously worked together in the 1970s before the likes of ESPN came around to snag the rights to the coverage.

Commenting on the deal WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said, "CBS Sports has long been a pioneer in covering a broad range of championship sports. We couldn't be more excited to see increased television coverage of the WSOP in the coming years and benefit from their growing media platforms."

No details on the first event to be aired was available as of press time.
