BT Sport makes history. The UEFA Champions League final will be available in 360° virtual reality, on YouTube, and on the new BT Sport Virtual Reality App.
Both the Europa League challenge between Manchester United and Ajax that will take place on May 24 and the Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid on June 3 will be accessible in the UK free of charge. The matches will be broadcasted via BT Sport’s video player, via app, YouTube channel, and through BTSport.com.
As BT Sport announced on their official portal, “This unmissable experience will allow fans to choose between a 360° produced program with commentary and graphics or select their own camera viewpoint.”
“BT is ready to make sport accessible to everyone. This is why we are going to broadcast the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League for free to everyone in the UK “ -said BT Consumer CEO, John Petter.
“A younger audience and traditional TV viewers will have the possibility to watch these great teams live on social media and on mobile devices.
“VR can offer our viewers an immersive second screen view which will enhance our coverage. We’re excited to be broadcasting what we believe to be the biggest multi-camera live 360° sporting event ever for the first time to our customers.”
