Verizon Waives Fees For Subscribers Headed To The Winter Olympics

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. Not only will this be the first time that any Winter Olympics has been captured in VR, but it will also be the first time that Olympic programming in VR will be streamed live in the US across a plethora of devices and platforms. Unfortunately, that means a new paid subscription will be required for those who don't already have one, but that may turn out to be worth it. The VR content will include the opening and closing ceremonies, behind-the-scene interviews, and all-time favorite events like ski jumping, snowboarding, figure skating, ice hockey, and curling. During the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, NBC partnered with Samsung to offer VR content but that programming was made available the day after.

The VR experience is enabled by Intel® True VR technology, which uses multiple camera pods at each event to create interactive 360-degree virtual reality environments. Making events available live will only help the usage.
