Perhaps even more than the Summer Olympics, the speed and action of the Winter Olympics lends itself to dynamic entertainment, which is why NBC and Intel will be collaborating to present the 2018 PyongChang Winter Olympics in VR through the NBC Sports VR app. The duo has announced that it will stream 30 events in 180-degree stereoscopic view with Intel's True VR system.
Though this won't be the first instance of VR sports, these games will indeed offer up the first Winter Olympic events to be streamed live in VR. 18 of the 30 VR events will be available completely live, while the remaining 12 will be available on demand the following day.
Events on offer include many marquee offerings like Men's Downhill, Men's Snowboard Halfpipe, Pairs Free Figure Skating, Short Track Speed Skating, and Women's Ice Hockey.
