NBC presented some VR content during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, but those events were made available the following day, rather than live.

North Korea offered to hold a working-level meeting with South Korea next week to discuss details of its plan to send an art troupe to the South during next month's PyeongChang Winter Olympics, the unification ministry said Saturday.

Intel TrueVR "pods" at each event will create a 360 degree virtual environment where viewers can watch. Included in the more than 50 hours of coverage will be the opening and closing ceremonies, alpine skiing, curling, snowboarding, skeleton, figure skating, short track, ski jumping, ice hockey, big air, and more. The content will be accessible to pay-TV subscribers through the NBC Sports VR app. Pence will review ICBM defence systems in Alaska and reaffirm to the leaders of Japan and South Korea that the United States is fully committed to stability in the region, the official said. "With the help of Intel's industry-leading virtual reality technology, NBC Olympics will deliver a transformative experience that will bring to Olympic fans an entirely new perspective on the speed, thrills and excitement of an Olympic Winter Games".

The Pyeongchang Olympics, which start on February 9, coincide with high tensions on the Korean Peninsula due to North Korean nuclear tests and contentious exchanges between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

WhatsApp flaw lets hackers spy on group chats
Remeber the end-to-end encryption that WhatsApp uses for sending messages between users? In a statement to Wired , WhatsApp said it had looked into the problem.


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

Taeyang's Olympic song was announced last June, but was released to coincide with increasing activities in South Korea ahead of the Olympics, including the torch relay, which has also featured Korean entertainers as torchbearers.

VR streaming in sports isn't a novel idea, but this would be the first time for the Olympics to be streamed in VR to nearly all VR headsets.
