We’re launching more than 50 live NBA games in virtual reality (VR) on Meta Quest, including five in immersive, 180-degree VR.
You can watch NBA, WNBA, G League and 2K League content on both XTADIUM and Meta Horizon Worlds.
We’re also partnering with the league to offer licensed team apparel in the Meta Avatars Store, so you can style your avatar in your favorite team’s gear.
What this Means
Five of the games will include celebrity broadcasters. There are WNBA games as well.
Future of VR
What's impressive here is how committed Meta is to the future of VR. They are throwing everything and the kitchen sink at making this work and it's possible as the technology improves and becomes more realistic that this could pay huge dividends for Meta.
What do you think? Is watching basketball in VR compelling?
