NBA, NextVR to Produce 27 Live Games in VR This Season

NBA will broadcast every game in VR this season

NBA will broadcast every game in VR this season

After streaming weekly live games in VR past year, the National Basketball Association announced plans this week to offer a slate of games in VR this season as well.

Some other cool features coming will be live stats that will be a part of the virtual scene and a new point-of-view feature that will give you control over your VR viewing experience.

The full lineup of live VR events begins with a free preview on October 21 with a game between the Dallas Mavericks at the Houston Rockets. "The fan response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to seeing their reaction to this year's new VR capabilities". To access the VR streams, one must be a subscriber to NBA League Pass. Fans will be able to authenticate their accounts by providing their NBA League Pass login credentials through the NBA League Pass VR section of NextVR's app. This feature, as well as the 27 live games, will also be available to global League Pass subscribers.

It's similar to Major League Baseball enabling MLB.TV subscribers this season to use At Bat VR to watch live games on a traditional feed in a VR environment.

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. 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.

Now the question of the price of course, for $200 League Pass owners will get the full experience, if that is too steep you can order the game you want for $7 via the NBA's on-demand-service.
