How to Watch the 2018 Winter Olympics in VR

Latest news

    The 2018 Winter Olympics is about to kick off in PyeongChang, South Korea today, and this year you’ll be able to watch a total of 30 events in VR, shared across live and on-demand 360/180 recordings.

    NBC has partnered with Intel to provide more than 50 hours of live virtual reality coverage through the NBC Sports VR app. On-demand video will be open to the public, while live streaming video will require you to authenticate your subscription with your pay TV provider, i.e. cable, satellite or digital operator.

    Remarkably, neither Oculus Rift nor HTC Vive are on the list below, as only Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard, Google Daydream, and Windows ‘MR’ VR headsets have access.

    VR Headsets Required

    It appears that the apps listed above are also locked to the United States region – likely due to licensing issues. We’ll be investigating work-arounds for non-US viewers, and update should we find any (outside VPN).
