Virtual reality is rapidly becoming more mainstream as headsets and smartphones supporting this technology are now readily available. A natural fit for this type of content has always been live entertainment but the associated costs has kept it at bay. Today, the NBA has announced that it will be diving into the world of virtual reality content with a commitment to broadcast at least 25 games this season.
