Taking place tomorrow is the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017 tournament by Turner Sports and IMG. While there will be traditional coverage on TBS as well as Twitch, Youtube and other digital channels, virtual reality (VR) esports broadcaster SLIVER.tv will be adding its immersive experience to the event.
Just like SLIVER.tv has done with past esports events like the Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2017, the broadcaster will provide CS:GO fans with a unique perspective for the matches. They’ll be able to get inside the game map, follow their favourite teams and players, all in VR.
“These latest technology and product enhancements will further improve the fan experience, creating even more opportunities to engage with our ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier content,” said Robert Occhialini, Vice President, esports Products and Technology, Turner Sports in a statement. “We’re looking forward to working closely with our technology partners as we continue to drive innovation across our growing esports portfolio.”
To watch the proceedings in VR and 360-degrees, visit the SLIVER.tv website or download the SLIVER.tv Android and iOS apps and use Google Cardboard. The SLIVER.tv app can also be downloaded for Samsung GearVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of SLIVER.tv, reporting back with the latest announcements.
