With the summer Olympic games in Rio just about one month away, there are still many questions surrounding the games. Not only have some athletes expressed fear about attending due to the Zika virus, a recent report relays that a slew of body parts recently washed up on the beach right in front of where the Volleyball competition is set to be held. And when you add in the myriad of concerns regarding crime and whether or not the requisite infrastructure will be ready in time, the 2016 Summer games in Brazil will be unique to say the least.
All that said, for Olympics enthusiasts intent on watching all the action from home, NBC today announced that it’s planning to provide viewers with upwards of 85 hours of VR content. The only catch, though, is that the available VR content will only be made accessible to users who have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone and the Samsung Gear VR headset.
