NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (PRWEB) NextVR, the leader in broadcasting live events in virtual reality, and the National Hockey League (NHL) in association with Disney Streaming Services, today announced a new partnership to bring fans unique experiences in virtual reality, featuring digital highlights from select 2019 NHL marquee events.

NextVR launched the exclusive partnership by releasing a virtual reality experience captured at the 2019 Honda NHL® All-Star Game on Saturday, Jan. 26, in San Jose, Calif. Content captured included digital highlight packages produced by NextVR in a 3D stereoscopic VR format. This content is now available for free to fans globally on a new NHL channel within the NextVR app.

“There couldn’t be a better time to add the NHL to our growing portfolio of content partnerships. The VR industry continues to gather momentum after a blockbuster holiday shopping season, and now more sports fans than ever will be able to immerse themselves in this completely new hockey VR experience,” said Danny Keens, VP of Content at NextVR. “NHL fans are passionate and always on the look-out for more action and adrenaline. This partnership will give them sensations that only fans at the arena have been able to experience so far.”

“We are always looking to create new experiences for our passionate fans, and are pleased to partner with NextVR, a global leader in producing virtual reality content. Not every fan can experience our marquee events in-person, but NextVR’s immersive content will bring fans closer to the on-ice action than ever before and make them feel like they are at a live NHL game,” said Chris Golier, NHL Vice President of Business Development.

The content will provide fans with a game-changing, new hockey experience, featuring VR post game highlights from some of the NHL’s biggest events including the excitement of the fans, speed and finesse of NHL’s teams, big hits, epic matchups and goals, giving fans the opportunity to see the action as if they were in the arena.

NextVR is available on nearly all existing VR platforms. Fans can download the free NextVR app from the stores associated with the following platforms: Oculus Go, Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, HTC VIVE Pro, HTC Vive Focus, HTC VIVE, Windows Mixed Reality, Pimax, Gear VR, and Google Daydream.
