Penn State athletics to launch virtual reality channel

Penn State Athletics announced Thursday that it partnered with EON Sports VR, a virtual reality sports training and fan experience company, to create a virtual reality channel for the Nittany Lions’ athletics called LionVision VR.

“Penn Staters are the most passionate alumni and fans in the nation,” said Michael Cross, Assistant Athletic Director for New Business Development in a release by Penn State Athletics. “LionVision VR will allow Nittany Lion fans spread across the world to see, hear and feel what it’s like to be part of practice and game day in ways that were never previously possible.”

As one of the first college teams in the U.S. to offer a virtual reality channel, Penn State fans across the country will be able to access immersive views of practices, scrimmages, huddles, pre- and post-game coaches’ talks and interviews from teams on their smart phones. The school plans on debuting the new technology in mid-October, building toward including content from all 31 teams.

To access LionVision VR, Penn State fans can purchase an annual subscription, which costs $29.95 and will run through June 30, 2017. Also, those who sign up this year before Oct. 3 will receive a Penn State branded VR headset.

“This is the next best thing to being in State College,” said Cross in the release. “If you love Penn State, you can look forward to having regular experiences with LionVision VR.”
