Are you going VA for the NBA?
In past years, we’ve seen the MLB and NHL dabble into the idea of making virtual reality a standard in sports; but the NBA is now diving off the edge this fall. The National Basketball Association is jumping ahead of the competition this year and have announced plans to make every game for the pending 2018 season in full VR. This should be intriguing subscribers of NBA League Pass, as you’ll be able to use either a Samsung Gear VR or Google Daydream device for the NextVR app.
Owners of Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality headset are also in luck, as the NextVR app will finally have support for the platform this week for the start. Aside from the new up-close action and angles that standard screens can’t provide, we’re most intrigued about is the Screening Room feature – which will allow you to watch up to 13 games on one massive virtual screen.
Let us know in the comments below if you plan on investing into VR for the NBA this year.
