Fans will soon have the opportunity to watch a major sporting event live in virtual reality (VR) without special equipment through the FOX SPORTS VR app.

ohio stateThe offering from FOX Sports, powered by LiveLike, will be home to the non-conference US college football showdown between No 3 Ohio State and No 14 Oklahoma on Saturday, 17 September (7.30pm ET, FOX broadcast network). It will be available to 95 million authenticated households through the new app, available for iOS and Android devices, making it the first live sporting event widely available in VR.

Fans can access this first-of-its kind VR experience by downloading and installing the FOX SPORTS VR app and signing in with their television provider credentials the same way they currently enjoy streaming in FOX Sports GO, FOX Sports’ TV-everywhere app. The VR experience can be enjoyed without any special VR equipment through the interactive, 360° viewing experience built specifically for mobile devices, or with a Gear VR or cardboard headset.

The app includes an immersive VR experience which starts in a Virtual Suite in the stadium. Users can watch the game from the suite or choose among several on-field perspectives to get closer to the action. An in-stadium video board playing the live FOX Sports television broadcast, allowing users the opportunity to watch the synchronised telecast simultaneously with VR content. And, users also have an opportunity to see full rosters, schedules and matchup stats from both teams on demand.

“FOX Sports’ commitment to innovation makes them the perfect company for us to work with as we roll out a VR experience that allows today’s sports fan to lean-in and watch sports in an entirely new way,” said Andre Lorenceau, founder and CEO, LiveLike. “The Oklahoma vs Ohio State game represents the beginning of our relationship with FOX Sports, and we look forward to working with them to make the FOX SPORTS VR app an important destination in the sports viewing experience.”

FOX SPORTS earlier in the year broadcast the Daytona 500 in VR.
