National Basketball Association to Broadcast Games in 360-Degree VR This Season”

It raced ahead of the competition previous year by streaming weekly live games in VR. Jeff Marsilio, NBA Vice President, Global Media Distribution, said in a statement that the fan response then was "overwhelmingly positive".

Beginning Oct. 21 a free preview will screen during the matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and the Houston Rockets, which is the first of 27 live games scheduled to show during the 2017-2018 season, which will also include full-scale presentation including live holographic images, dynamic stats, pre and post-game analysis, behind the scene feature and more.

The VR-enhanced games will start on October 21st with the Dallas Mavericks vs. the Houston Rockets (see the full schedule below), and those interested in trying it out can get a free preview. A new point-of-view feature will also give you more control over the proceedings during the 27 live games (much like what Fox offered as part of its Super Bowl 51 VR suite).
