With new distribution deals from the NFL on Twitter to ESPN on Sling ­ how we watch TV is now driven by the consumer demand to do more while we watch tune in to watch our favorite team. Enter virtual reality. VR is the first truly transformative technology for sports broadcasting in years – to date, the biggest improvements we've seen have been HD (just better picture) and ""the yellow line."" With VR, we can actually take you to the game, like you're sitting courtside or on the 50­year line, while still being able to check their Twitter, trash talk and follow their team in real­time.
Speakers : Saswat Panda, CTO, Livelikevr and Michael Davies, SVP Fox Sports
