Last year the NBA streamed weekly live games in VR and now the organization plans to make the entire season just as immersive for League Pass subscribers. Utilizing the NextVR app, users will be able to stream 27 different live games on their Samsung Gear VR or Google Daydream headset from the Screening Room.
Users will be able to pick and choose up to 13 games in virtual reality and stream them all at once on a massive VR screen. The service will also be available to Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Additionally, the screen will also display infographics of live stats within the field of play. If you don’t want to cough up $200 USD on a League Pass subscription for VR services, you can pay $7 USD for the game you wish to stream, courtesy of the NBA‘s on-demand service.
Will this change how you watch the NBA? Let us know in the comments below and also read up on the new NBA All-Star Game format.
