If You’re Hoping to Watch the Super Bowl in VR, Sorry.
Broadcast video from VR also just isn’t good enough yet. When colleagues at CNET have watched VR broadcasts in the past, they’ve complained about blurry images and the lack of any commentators or scoreboards to help them understand what’s going on.
“There’s still some technical issues that need to be solved,” said Todd Richmond, a project director at the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies.
And though it appears broadcast VR is getting better, Richmond said there’s another problem: “It comes down to why would I want to immerse myself into a sporting event, aside from it being a novelty factor?”
