The 2016 Olympics have started and there are more ways than ever to follow the games, including Virtual Reality.
Rio 2016 kicked off on August 5th and will run for two weeks, with the closing ceremony taking place on the 21st August. This means there are hours and hours of world class sport for you to enjoy, along with new world records being set all the time!
Because Brazil is four hours behind the UK, a lot of time will be spent on smartphones and tablets in order to catch-up and for the first time VR. The BBC has announced that a whopping 100 hours of 360-degree video will be streamed on the new sport app.
The BBC has UK broadcasting for the Rio Olympics and so will be covering around 3,000 hours with BBC One and BBC Four being the main channels for the games. Broadcasting for the games will be shown everyday from 1pm – 4am. That’s a lot!
The official Olympics YouTube channel will have a comprehensive daily update as well as providing quick guides to the events for anyone unfamiliar. The Twitter and Facebook accounts for the Rio Olympics will also have regular highlights and updates.
If that wasn’t enough, then the official apps for iOS and Android have everything you will need including 24 HD streams. A main benefit of the app is that you can customise updates depending on what you’re interested in.
However you choose to watch the games, there will be plenty of content out there for you to enjoy.
