NBA Launches Google Daydream App and VR Series

Now you can experience the NBA in a whole new way with the launch of the NBA VR app, available exclusively on Google’s Daydream.

For the launch for the new app, the NBA is also debuting its first-ever episodic series, House of Legends, where NBA legends like James Worth, Robert Horry, Baron Davis, John Starks and Bruce Bowen discuss everything from pop culture to the greatest moments of their career.

In addition to the launch of the episodic VR series that has you sitting in on intimate conversations with the players, the app also includes a three-dimensional virtual sports lounge with a library of immersive NBA content including video-on-demand, NBA highlights and features, and player and team statistics.

Digital Domain helped build the end-to-end VR solution including, production of the episodes and development of the app and cloud-based distribution capabilities.

If you have one of Google’s Daydream View VR headsets, you can dive right into the NBA VR app starting today for free. Episodes of House of Legends as well as additional VR content will continue to roll out to the app over the coming months.
