NextVR specializes in virtual reality live broadcasting, and has worked with major sporting organizations like the NBA, NFL, NHL, Nascar, and more to put you in the midst of the action right from the comfort of your home. This season, the company agreed to broadcast some 20 live NBA games in VR, straight to the NextVR app, which is available on Gear VR and Google’s Daydream View headset. And while you’d typically need to drop $99 on the NBA League Pass to see the action live in VR, the Spurs vs. Timberwolves game this Tuesday will be accessible for free.

Tune in to the NextVR app on your Gear VR or Daydream View headset on January 17th at 8:30PM ET to watch courtside, live in VR. Drop us a comment below to let us know who you’re rooting for.

    Not accessible for the Vive, a bit of a pity with this exclusive crap going on.

      This appears to be some kind of mobile agreement in place…. it irritates everyone with a Rift or Vive currently. My son loves basketball, I was hoping he could watch some of this on my Rift… but nope ><

      I'm rooting for access beyond the damn Gear ;)

      Yep, sucks. Would be nice to use with a better screen. NextVR said they were working on something at the beginning of the season to add availability on the Rift but I haven’t seen it yet. I have GearVR, but the resolution is typically pretty bad and last time I tried watching a live event on my GearVR I found out that it was only for the latest version of the GearVR. That really pissed me off. I would have to upgrade my phone and the headset. No thanks!

        Ah, old GearVR. I was going to say, the newer/newest phones + GearVR have the best resolution for VR to date. Unfortunate, since Rift/Vive are still the ones capable of so much more in comparison.

    Hope NextVR brings this stuff to PSVR.

  • Broken Jamz

    Rift and Vive owners aren’t going anywhere.
    A smart developer could make a wad of dough.

  • I wish some of these apps would make their way to PSVR, too.
