*Disclaimer: I’m not an employee of NBC nor it’s subsidiaries. With not many good options to choose from with VR for the iPhone, I happily downloaded NBC’s Sports app for the Olympics in VR. For those curious to what phone and headset, I used my iPhone 7 Plus with the MergeVR Headset, and I currently work as a Unity mobile VR developer. After fumbling around with NBC’s very haphazard authentication system, I finally got it to recognize my national television provider. First impressions are very promising. Clean user interfaces greet users to various experiences. Although it gets tedious to select videos, the videos themselves are of decent/good quality. My absolutely favorite part was watching a taping of the Opening Ceremony, which has me using my headset for a record amount of time until my battery nearly ran out. There were some recommendations I would make going forward: 1) Rigorously test any system before release that may erroneously prevent/needlessly delay valid users from accessing premium VR experiences. 2) Ensure the user has access to every option in VR, without needlessly having to remove the headset to access the next part. The user ought to only have to put on the headset once. 3) Consider better camera placement for the Snowboarding and Sled Events that had better coverage than a straight side shot. Being in VR doesn’t have to require neck craning and whiplash from trying to observe the competitions. I hope these issues are resolved in a few years, as there may be great opportunities for VR in the next Olympic Games.
