Basketball VR fans rejoice, Next VR and the NBA have announced that, starting today 27th October, NBA games will be streamed in VR. In addition, they have upgraded the experience from last season, which basically just offered you a ‘courtside seat’ with no commentary. They are promising VR specific commentary, replays, better editing and less ‘glitches’.
How do you watch NBA in Virtual Reality?
The VR streamed games will be shown through the NBA league pass and for now at least you will need a Samsung Gear VR headset (although they have promised to add more as the season goes on). You will need to download the NextVR app onto your phone and in there you will see the NBA option.
Next Virtual Reality Game:
- October 27 2016
- 10:30PM ET
- Spurs at Kings
