BBC Will Show Olympics In Live 360-Degree Video

In one of the first large implementations of 360-degree video technology, the BBC will provide live 360-degree coverage of the Olympics through a mobile app. The network's BBC Sport 360 app is available for iOS, Android, and the Gear VR. BBC Taster will also provide some coverage on the web.

360-degree live video will be available for volleyball, boxing, basketball, and fencing events. The opening and closing ceremonies will also be shown.

Every event will be covered with at least four camera angles, letting you see them in a more immersive way.
