Virtual Reality Lets Fans Experience March Madness Like They’re Really There

1,021

March Madness finally has arrived, and two of college basketball’s major conferences are allowing fans to watch tournament games in amazing ways.

As part of a partnership with EON Sports VR, the Atlantic Coast Conference is broadcasting its tournament games in virtual reality, according to CNET. And starting Thursday the Big East will broadcast its tournament games in VR for the second straight season.

Fans can watch ACC games in VR by downloading the ACC VR app, whereas Big East games once again are available through the FOX Sports VR app. Both services allow the games to be viewed without a VR headset, though true virtual reality is achieved through using either a Samsung Gear VR headset or Google Cardboard.

While using a VR headset, users can choose from a variety of angles.

If you ask us, there’s nothing quite like watching a great college basketball game in person, but virtual reality is a pretty amazing alternative.
