BT Sport is bringing 360° highlights and instant replays from the UEFA Champions League, Premier League football, the FA Cup and boxing fixtures to its mobile and tablet app.
A minimum of 20 sporting events are promised in 360° by June 2018, kicking off tonight, Tuesday 5 December, with the UEFA Champions League match between Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.
This will be followed by Tottenham Hotspur v APOEL Nicosia on Wednesday, 6 December 2017. The full match will be shown exclusively live on BT Sport 3.
BT says all of its 360° video can be enjoyed with or without a VR headset and will be available alongside standard replays in the app which allows fans to to select different camera angles and viewpoints.
Jamie Hindhaugh, chief operating officer, BT Sport, said: “This is another first for 360° broadcasting.
“It’s another step forward in broadcast innovation that will give BT Sport the best possible viewing experience and shows BT Sport continues its commitment to be at the heart of this.
“We’re passionate about sport and technology and want to continue to explore new ways to combine them for the benefit of our viewers and bring them closer to the action.”
