Theta’s infrastructure will enable existing video platforms to get into the incremental revenues and reduce the content delivery CDN costs while end-users being rewarded for sharing their bandwidth to relay video on the peer to peer basis from any device like mobile, PC, and Smart TV. Right now, Theta will be coming to the World Poker Tour and the decentralized streaming protocol will have a 24/7 poker channel that is built on the blockchain. Adam Pliska, the CEO of the World Poker Tour said:
“World Poker Tour is excited to fully integrate Theta network peer-to-peer streaming infrastructure on our new Theta powered channel on WPT.com and provide millions of our global fans with a superior viewer experience.”
The integration with Theta will allow WPT to lower the video delivery costs by about 50% or even more while increasing the user engagement even more as well as boosting monetization. This is unlike the current providers on the market which charge a higher cost for streaming upfront. All users can earn TFUEL tokens for sharing the video content that utilizes excess bandwidth and computing resources. For the WPT, the fans can earn about $10 to $15 per month by watching their favorite poker content on their browser without having to download anything. Mitch Lio, the co-founder, and CEO of Theta Labs said:
“Theta Labs and WPT continue to lead the media and entertainment industry in the adoption of blockchain technology. This integration marks an important milestone and establishes WPT as the best and most cutting edge televised poker product in the world.”
He added that integrating Theta is a win-win position that will benefit all the stakeholders in the streaming ecosystem.
