Youtube Hosts Free Live Streaming Billiards
Youtube and Inside POOL Video will be hosting their first live streaming billiards event on Friday, June 17 starting at 7pm EST. The event is the Valley Forge 8-Ball which is produced by Super Billiards Expo promoter Allen Hopkins and features a first place prize of $3000 for the men’s division. The event is expected to continue play until Sunday evening.
Inside POOL Video received the live stream channel in April of 2011 when Youtube announced that they were launching a live stream section. Several channels were awarded the live streaming capability at that time.
J.R. Calvert of Inside POOL said, “We’re blessed to be given the live streaming functionality. We believe that this will be huge for billiards as more and more people use the Internet with their televisions. Since billiards was left without a chair when the music stopped in the 90’s for television programming, the Internet may be the second chance that we need to bring our sport back. We believe that Youtube and billiards will be a great mix.”
The event will start at 7pm EST on Friday, June 17 and continue until June 19, 2011. To view this free live stream on Youtube, please visit the Inside POOL live streaming channel at Youtube.com or look for the link to the stream on the homepage of Youtube.
