Great Britain's Winter Olympics team challenged to secure at least five medals

Great Britain's Winter Olympics team challenged to secure at least five medals

More programming details will be made available closer to the games in February, but the Olympics provide an example of how Hulu envisions live television viewership to work in the future.

Intel TrueVR "pods" at each event will create a 360 degree virtual environment where viewers can watch.

The British bobsledder Bruce Tasker will miss the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang after having a minor stroke on 4 January. Among the events planned for live coverage are downhill skiing, figure skating and ice hockey. As the Official Virtual Reality Experience Provider of the Olympic Games through 2024, the Intel True VR experience will be available in the USA via the forthcoming NBC* Sports VR app and globally through 10 global partner RHBs.

The heartthrob shared: "I felt emotional that another Olympic Games will be held in the country, as I remember watching the Summer Games 30 years ago in Seoul when I was a child".

However, the total installed base of VR headsets is relatively small, which could limit the effect of NBC's VR broadcasts on Winter Olympics viewership. She will be competing in her fourth straight winter games. Folks using Samsung, Google, Windows, and Android and iOS devices will be able to access the content via the NBC Sports VR app.

"In the four years since the Sochi Olympics ended, I've been practicing jumping with a feeling of regret", said Takanashi, who finished fourth in Sochi after being the favorite to win the sport's first women's Olympic gold.
