Get Ready for Puppy Bowl in VR

Alright people, grab your VR viewer and a good pair of headphones, because the cuteness is coming! If you’re like me and opt to watch the Puppy Bowl during the Big Game, then this year is going to be a treat.

Animal Planet has partnered up with shelters and rescues from around the U.S. to bring you 84 puppies in this year’s Puppy Bowl lineup, but this time they are bringing it to us in virtual reality.

On Sunday, February 7 from 3-5 PM ET/PT, you will be up-close and personal for two hours of fuzzy faces, sloppy kisses and puppy penalties. Puppy Bowl VR will be an epic matchup between #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff, viewing the rivalry straight from the 50-yard line in 360-degree video.

So what are a few things you can look look forward to during the big puppy game?
