  1. Watched this live on Sunday. They offered 5 independent streams live to the headset. Users could choose where they viewed from, pitchside, stands, behind the goal etc. To change the view you had to leave the current view, go back to the menu and restablish the new stream. This wasn’t too bad as the buffer was very short.

    All in all the experience was very good with the added bonus of sound really enhancing the feeling you were at the ground.

    Limitation was the pixels density in the Note 4 display. Some of the motion was not great but you can’t expect HD as you’d watch on your home TV.

    The 5 stream project very clearly demonstrated the clear potential for live VR streams for events. To have a choice of view was a real bonus.

    The producers advise they may have a showreel available soon and it will be a good watch.

    • Hey Tom,
      Really big thanks for your feedback and all your explanation 🙂 i was a bit disappointed not to saw this with my Oculus.
      Now it’s getting more and more exciting as more and more events will come in VR 🙂
      Cheers and thanks again!
