The WPBSA has signed a landmark deal with 110sport.tv to stream the qualifiers of all professional tournaments on the internet.
It means snooker fans will be able to watch every ball of every qualifying match live, starting with next week's Shanghai Masters qualifiers.
I understand 110sport will also inaugurate new events to be screened on their website.
This is, by anyone's definition, good news.
When I have more specific details I will of course report them here.
