PyeongChang Winter Olympics torch to tour Seoul

Share

British athletes are set for their best ever Winter Olympics according to UK Sport, which is targeting at least five medals from the Games in Pyeongchang next month. NBC has announced plans to broadcast more than 50 hours of virtual reality coverage from the upcoming games live to viewers in the United States. Unfortunately, that means a new paid subscription will be required for those who don't already have one, but that may turn out to be worth it.

The UK's biggest sports website, BBC Sport online will live stream all the key moments of the Winter Olympics to desktops, tablets and mobiles and on-demand video clips will be accessible at any time via the website. Among the events planned for live coverage are downhill skiing, figure skating and ice hockey.

Fully Produced VR Cast: Fans also have the option to lean back and enjoy a more immersive and fully produced VR Cast, curated to take advantage of the best view of the action and featuring graphics and picture-in-picture overlays. Also, North Korea should not be allowed to use the Olympics as an occasion to promote its regime to the outside world.

And in the event that you want to look like a victor - without going through the whole hassle of training, traveling and actually competing - you're in luck; consumer versions of the Team USA Medal Stand Collection will be available starting January 15 at nike.com and select retailers.
