National Basketball Association to Broadcast Games in 360-Degree VR This Season

Share

This new product will allow subscribers to watch any NBA League Pass game on a virtual movie theater-sized screen.

These games aren't actually broadcast productions in virtual reality, but fans can watch the games on a virtual movie theater-sized screen and immerse themselves in a 360-degree VR environment while selecting up to 13 National Basketball Association games to livestream on the screen.

Past year the National Basketball Association launched a program where they streamed one regular-season game in virtual reality each week, all season long. A new point-of-view feature will also give you more control over the proceedings during the 27 live games (much like what Fox offered as part of its Super Bowl 51 VR suite). These games will include live volumetric telestration, live infographics and stats inserted into the virtual screen. These advancements will add to last year's innovative productions highlighted by dedicated announcers, pre- and post-game analysis, in-arena entertainment and behind-the-scenes features.

This season, 27 live games in VR are on the schedule, starting with the October 21 game between the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets, which is free during the NBA League Pass preview period. "The fan response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to seeing their reaction to this year's new VR capabilities". Here you'll be able to pick and choose from every League Pass game in virtual reality. Those with a Samsung Gear VR headset or Google Daydream, and a compatible smartphone, can download he app for free the Oculus Store or Play Store.

Support is also going to be coming for the Mixed Reality platform from Microsoft with support for MR headsets, however, there is no news on support for PC headsets or the PlayStation VR.

Just like past year, games were selected to give all 30 teams the opportunity to play in VR at least once. Fans can go to nextvr.com/nba for additional game details and to learn how to get started in VR.
