France to Get 24-hour Poker TV Channel

The hedline pretty much says it all … Poker Channel France is coming soon, in June.

See how international politics works? You change the laws to make things conducive for business, and before you know it, all sorts of new dollars Euros come flowing into your country from all over the world.

New little mini-boom getting underway over there, it seems. Probably a good time to be Benjo.

ESPN Programming Note

I don’t think this has much to do with poker directly, but I’m trying to pimp a new blog indirectly it does because ESPN suddenly finds itself with a little extra programming cash on hand — not to mention some extra air time — having lost the rights to broadcast the Champions League in the US to Fox Soccer Channel.

Perhaps Fox got the funds to outbid ESPN from all those Season 7 World Poker Tour/Full Tilt infomercials they’ve been running? And what do you think the odds are that this could mean raises for Norman Chad and Lon McEachern more poker on TV?
