World Poker Tour (WPT) and Theta Labs have launched the first Web3-based digital season pass for a television program. Theta Labs is the company behind Theta Network, the blockchain built for video and entertainment. In essence, the WPT Season Pass is a 12-month license to access WPT content, and it is only available on the Theta blockchain. It will be up for sale on ThetaDrop, and it will also be available as a free airdrop to all holders of WPT NFT who have already registered on ThetaDrop.
About WPT Season Pass and why it matters for World Poker Tour
The World Poker Tour Season Pass is a non-fungible token that grants the holder live, commercial-free streaming access to the show’s 19th season. Also, it includes access to the premiere of each brand-new episode every Sunday through February 2023. Plus, you can see exclusive videos from WPT Season 18 there. The NFT drop will also be available on the WPT website.
Theta’s proprietary Digital Collectables DRM technology is responsible for this breakthrough. The innovation enables media companies or independent producers to sell or lease rights to their content in exchange for tokens on the Theta blockchain. Because of this, the WPT Season Pass can be sold or given to other people, who will then have their own individual 12-month license.
Across land-based tournaments, television, internet, and mobile, the WPT has established itself as the preeminent name in internationally televised gambling and entertainment. The World Poker Tour has aired in over 150 countries and territories around the world. The show is currently in its 20th season, which is viewable on Bally Sports in the United States.
Theta, which sponsored WPT Season 18 as its exclusive streaming partner, will do so again for WPT Season 19. Theta WPT is sure to be a hit with fans and bring in more people to the World Poker Tour. Some of its key attractions include being completely ad-free and includes innovative features like real-time chatting with other viewers.
