13 October 2017, 10:52 | Casey Mitchell
There's also a new feature called Screening Room, which will allow subscribers to watch any NBA League Pass game on a giant 2D virtual movie theater-sized screen even if the game isn't being streamed in VR.
Via NextVR's app, the official League Pass VR partner of the National Basketball Association, the NBA, users will be able to stream 27 different live games on their Samsung Gear VR or Google Daydream headset from the Screening Room. NBA League Pass is part of NBA Digital, the NBA's extensive cross-platform portfolio of multimedia assets jointly managed by the NBA and Turner Sports, and features almost 1,000 out-of-market live games.
Fruit producer selling 'low-fat' avocado
Intrigued? To be fair, avocado fat is generally considered good for you already, particularly in regards to heart health . The company said it's all been possible by growing its avocados in special soil and climate conditions.
This year, new features include dynamic stats and live infographics within the 360-degree virtual image, volumetric telestration (for on-screen sketching), and user-selected point-of-view abilities to add to the NextVR experience. Returning from last year's efforts are dedicated announcers, pre- and post-game coverage, and immersion in in-arena entertainment.
If you don't want to fork out $200 on a League Pass subscription just to watch in VR, you can pay $7 for the game you wish to stream, courtesy of the NBA's on-demand service. "The fan response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to seeing their reaction to this year's new VR capabilities". Fans will be able to authenticate their accounts by providing their NBA League Pass login credentials (obtained at NBA.com or through the NBA App) through the NBA League Pass VR section of NextVR's app.
The NBA has partnered with NBA Digital and NextVR to bring a brand new experience to fans across the world. If you don't own a Samsung VR or Google Daydream you will soon have another option with Windows Mixed Reality headset.
The NBA is certainly getting a kickstart this season with all the super trades that happened off-season and now the promise of 27 virtual reality-enabled games.
