Sky Releases VR App Showing Sport, Disney and More Videos
« on: October 04, 2016, 12:33:33 PM »

Sky VR app recently launched by Sky, has brought a new way you which provides you with a range of 360-degree videos- which includes  sport, film and arts.

With this new Launch, Sky VR Studio, becomes one of the first mainstream media companies to start creating high-quality, big budget content for the new viewing platforms.

The new Sky VR app launches with 20 different pieces of content related to Star Wars and other bits of Disney.

According to Wired, Neil Graham, executive producer of Sky’s VR content said:

“We realised we have all this great content access in terms of Sky and we have great ideas for the use of this content but now we need a home for it,”

According to Sky sports, in his second piece of VR content for Sky Sports, David Beckham is seen entering a Sky VR simulator, which takes him and the viewer to visit the world's best sports events at the touch of a button.

The footage was created in-house by the Sky VR Studios, in collaboration with Google. Viewers will feel like they are trackside at Silverstone or have ringside seats watching Anthony Joshua.

David Beckham said: "It was great to work with Sky and Google on this film to launch the new Sky Virtual Reality app...the team from the Sky VR studio came up with an incredible concept that shows the range of sport Sky offers...Being able to take other sports fans on a journey into some of the world's biggest sporting events was a unique opportunity."

The new Sky app is launching on Magic Window, Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear and Oculus Rift, and will be rolled out over other platforms in the coming months.

The app can be downloaded for free for users with compatible smartphone devices.

Sky is to become the home of high-quality virtual reality (VR) content with the launch of the brand new app.

Anyone interested can "head on down to the O2 from October 20th to get a Sky-branded Google Cardboard viewer. It'll work on iOS and Android handsets as well as the Gear VR and Oculus Rift, and is available in the UK, Italy, Germany, Austria, Australia, NZ and the US."
