The NBA and NextVR, the VR video and livestreaming company, announced the 2018-19 schedule, which will let even more basketball fans experience games in VR.
Now livestreaming its third NBA season, NextVR announced in a blogpost that they’re expanding the distribution of live NBA League Pass VR experiences to include Oculus Venues, the app that allows Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR owners to watch live content in the stands with friends, family, and hundreds of other fans.
NextVR will continue to feature select games in immersive stereoscopic 3D, but also standard streams of all League Pass games in the NextVR ‘Screening Room’ and other on-demand content in the NextVR League Pass channel of the NextVR app.
The live VR schedule will begin on October 21st with the NBA League Pass Free Preview, which will feature two games: the Golden State Warriors vs. the Denver Nuggets on the 21st, and the Golden State Warriors vs. the Phoenix Suns on the 22nd.
For some games (marked below) you’ll need an NBA League Pass subscription, which can be purchased as a stand-alone VR package or single game, and are included with a subscription purchased through participating video distributors or directly through the NBA.
NextVR’s broadcasts will be available through Oculus Venues (Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR) and on all other supported VR platforms through The NBA League Pass channel in the NextVR app. The free NextVR app is available on Gear VR, Google Daydream, Windows VR headsets, PlayStation VR, Oculus Go, HTC Vive, HTC Vive Pro, and Oculus Rift.
