Eurosport VR app to bring unparalleled live Olympic experience
Eurosport is launching an incredible VR app to serve up the most immersive Winter Olympics experience ever.
We are bringing you over 55 hours of live VR coverage from PyeongChang, featuring highlights such as the alpine skiing downhill races, ice hockey finals, figure skating and the opening and closing ceremonies.
Our multi-camera coverage gives you up to seven live streams on selected events, while daily on-demand packages let you catch up with the best of the action in Korea.
Ralph Rivera, Managing Director of Eurosport Digital, said: "As part of our aspiration to deliver the first digital Olympics across Europe, we will deliver every moment, from every angle to everyone - including a more immersive experience via VR."
The app is available on iOS and Android phones, and can be used with Windows Mixed Reality, Google Daydream and Samsung Gear VR headsets.
The programming is supplied by Olympic Broadcasting Services and the app powered by Intel.
