"By committing to a schedule of VR games, we've been able to listen to fan feedback in real-time and deploy improvements on a weekly basis", said Jeff Marsilio, NBA Vice President, Global Media Distribution.

It raced ahead of the competition previous year by streaming weekly live games in VR. Today they announced that they're doing it again, starting with a free preview on October 21st when the Houston Rockets host the Dallas Mavericks.

NextVR will debut new product features including live volumetric telestration, live infographics and dynamic stats inserted into the virtual scene, and user-selected point-of-view. "The fan response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to seeing their reaction to this year's new VR capabilities". Now, it's making its entire season immersive for League Pass subscribers.

There's also a new feature called Screening Room, which will allow subscribers to watch any NBA League Pass game on a giant 2D virtual movie theater-sized screen even if the game isn't being streamed in VR. This virtual screen will enable fans to select up to 13 games to livestream.
