March Madness Ratings At 24-Year High

March Madness Ratings At 24-Year High

But if the fully produced experience is much better than VR streams that just provide a stationary camera and pull audio from the TV broadcast, it could convince fans to open their wallet and change the entire business model of VR streams.

You can access the NCAA March Madness Live VR app through the Oculus store; you'll need a Gear VR headset and a Samsung device to watch the games in virtual reality. That trio will call the game specifically from the perspective of fans watching the live coverage in VR.

The folks at Cut Cable Today have the scoop on how to watch March Madness if you've cut your cord.

For those who want to watch the NCAA Tournment in virtual reality you will now have an opportunity to do so starting this week. Through one courtside camera, fans will hear audio and commentary from the linear CBS broadcast.

The reach and adoption of VR technology has reached a point to support a premium, courtside approach that consumers will pay for, Hania Poole, GM/VP of NCAA Digital, Turner Sports, said.

As far as the "virtual ticket" idea, Aufhauser noted that Intel provides the technology to enable the new experiences while its distribution partners come up with their own way to monetize the content. Intel True VR will deliver immersive VR experiences with live and on-demand sports experiences, in-game highlights, and produced game feeds to bring the in-stadium experience to life from any location.

Intel's new virtual reality arm, along with Turner and CBS Sports, are once again making the NCAA men's basketball tournament games available in VR. Intel noted that Intel Tru VR is the new brand to emerge from the Voke acquisition.

"VOKE was started over seven years ago with a passion to dramatically change how fans experience sports", says Jayaram. Round of 16 games begin Thursday. The 360 Replay-enhanced clips enable close-up views from every possible angle.
