Germany expected to top medals table at the 2018 Winter Olympics

NBC is going for the gold this year and offering up an extensive live stream of the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, in virtual reality for USA pay-TV subscribers. This is the first time any of the Winter Olympics will be available in live VR. 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.

For PyeongChang, the opening and closing ceremonies will be streamed in VR, as will alpine skiing, snowboarding, curling, skeleton, figure skating, ice hockey and ski jumping, among other sports.

By making the content available in VR, NBC looks to appeal to a wider audience and buck the trend of declining Olympics viewership.

A great example of the type of data-intensive, immersive experiences Intel is uniquely able to make possible, Intel True VR will bring fans around the world closer to the action in PyeongChang in an interactive, virtual reality environment. Verizon has announced that it's waiving global roaming fees for customers who are going to attend the Winter Olympics. Making events available live will only help the usage.

The 2018 Winter Olympics starts February 9, and Nike has unveiled what Team USA will be wearing.
