"Learning from the masters"

Reviewed by / Jul 17, 2013

Pokerstars TV app features latest poker shows from both online Pokerstars tournaments and worlwide real events.

Read and practice are the right path to become a master, specially in poker. What's more, watching the top poker players in action boost the learning by giving us some clues of what to do in real situations. Poker is one of the most exciting sports to watch and Pokerstars TV makes it simple bringing the most important events to your mobile device.

Pokerstars TV app is set in a minimalist layout for a faster and easier video content discovery. Thus, there's a swipable slider on the top to access the featured content, and a scrollable list of videos just below. In addition, we can choose between "PSTV Picks" (that's it, editor's choice) and "Latest Episodes". In addition, from settings you can access to "featured" videos, "channels" (filter by events: EPT, Online Action, SCOOP, etc.) and "My channel" where are listed all the videos you've bookmarked previously.

Videos load quite fast and the quality (sound and visuals) is acceptable. I'm missing though extra options in the video player such as adjusting volume, brightness, or even quality. However, the main complaint concerns the updating pace which is far from being overwhelming. Expect no more than 2 new videos per week, specially if there's no away-from-keyboard special events.

Besides the app is a must-have for poker-passionate.
