UK-based TV company Sky is launching an innovative new VR entertainment app that is designed to offer an unprecedented degree of immersion for Sky subscribers interested in the worlds of sports and film. The Sky VR app is being launched in conjunction with a pair of new VR experiences, namely 'Sky Sports: Closer featuring David Beckham' as well as an interactive depiction of the romantic ballet Giselle.

The footage for these VR entertainment apps was put together as part of a collaboration between the Sky VR studio and Google.

The most fascinating potential with the Sky VR app certainly has to do with sports, as it will allow sports fans to view their favorite sports with exceptional perspective and clarity, but the fact that the offerings will extend beyond the sporting world speak to Sky's ambitions to be an industry leader in consumer virtual reality entertainment.
