Oculus Venues: Watch Live Events in VR (Facebook F8 Keynote) (Update Ep59)
Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018.
Facebook revealed plans for live streaming sports, comedy shows and concerts in virtual reality at yesterday’s F8 keynote. Oculus Venues is the name of the app and it will feature content from NextVR, which already has streaming partnerships with professional sports Leagues and Live Nation for concerts. Live social engagement will be a big part of the experience as you can watch events in VR with friends and lots of other people. The app will be available at the end of May on Oculus Go and Gear VR.
