Verizon launches special roaming offer for Winter Olympics fans

UK Sport has acknowledged the "Theatre of Jeopardy" in challenging Great Britain to claim its biggest medal haul in Winter Olympics history at the Pyeongchang 2018 Games next month. Though it's unclear precisely which devices will be supported, Variety reports that the VR content will be available for "authenticated users on Samsung, Google, Windows, and Android and iOS devices through the NBC Sports VR app".

In addition, NBC Olympics will offer VR replays of all events previously livestreamed; one daily 360-degree video of a sport not available in VR the previous day; and packaged highlights from the day before.

Intel TrueVR "pods" at each event will create a 360 degree virtual environment where viewers can watch. As the Official Virtual Reality Experience Provider of the Olympic Games through 2024, the Intel True VR experience will be available in the USA via the forthcoming NBC* Sports VR app and globally through 10 global partner RHBs.
