NBC Olympics will air more than 50 hours of live virtual reality coverage of the PyeongChang Winter Games next month.
Coverage powered by Intel will be available for authenticated users with Windows Mixed Reality headsets, Samsung Gear VR, and both Google Cardboard and Google Daydream, with compatible iOS or Android devices via the NBC Sports VR app.
It's the first Olympics with live virtual reality programming. VR debuted for Rio 2016 on delay.
Virtual reality coverage includes the Opening and Closing ceremonies plus the Olympics' marquee events — figure skating free skates, hockey finals and Alpine skiing's downhill races.
NBC Olympics will also offer virtual reality replays of all events previously live streamed, one daily 360-degree video of a sport not available in VR the previous day and packaged highlights from the day before.
