Americans know that the Super Bowl is just around the corner. It is almost a sin to miss it. Fans will have the option to view on your TV screens. However, there is also the option to view the biggest sports event, in the form virtual reality (VR).
Fox Sports has recently revealed that the Fox Sports VR app will be getting a virtual suite where users will be able to watch highlight clips from the game. What happens is that VR users will find themselves in a private virtual room in front of a big screen where the clips will be playing. This means that users will be viewing some parts of the game in almost real-time. Almost because it also means that users will not be watching the game live in VR.
What is great though is that the app will be showcasing around 16 to 20 of the best Super Bowl plays. Users can also choose to watch from six different camera angles. They can switch from being in a suite behind the goal then the next minute, watch from the sideline.
The virtual reality platform for sports, Livelike, is also responsible for the Fox Sports app, which works on Samsung Gear VR and Cardboard. The app is also available for download on iOS and Android devices. Users without a VR headset can still use their mobile devices to move around.
Sports fans' wait for the annual National Football League championship game this year will soon be over as it takes place on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017 at 6:30 PM ET. Although, viewers may still need to log in with their cable account to watch.
