Telecasts for countries outside of the United States are still being negotiated with networks and have yet to be announced by ESPN.

Lon McEachern and Norman Chad will provide the commentary for all 17 episodes of the ESPN broadcasts, including the semi-live coverage of the 2008 WSOP main event final table on November 11th, the action of which will have taken place less than 24 hours before air time at the Rio in Las Vegas.

Clips from the shows, including a preview of the first episode, can be found at the ESPN website.
