NBA Rolls Out VR Stream to Acclaim

Publish date:

The NBA became the first pro sporting league to roll out a virtual reality stream of a game last week with its immersive presentation of the Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans match-up. And those who were able to catch it via their Samsung Gear VR headsets were suitably impressed.

Writes Fast Company's Daniel Terdiman, "Live sports (especially basketball, which is nonstop action and played in a relatively small space) may very well lend itself to virtual reality, in large part because of the immersive nature of it. Watching the game from the perspective of a center court, courtside seat was a lot of fun. Not as much fun as sitting in one of those seats, of course, but it did offer a new, up-close, view that I, and others, felt approximated the real deal."
