Intel Tips Off NCAA March Madness with Multiyear Exclusive Partnerships

Intel Corporation is announcing a new corporate partnership deal to provide Intel® True VR (virtual reality) to fans of college sports through a multiyear agreement with Turner Sports*, CBS Sports* and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)*. The relationship will debut with the 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship, with Intel as the exclusive VR live games partner of the NCAA.

The VR experience will be available via the new NCAA March Madness Live VR app, powered by Intel in the Oculus* store, available for download today. For the first time, college basketball fans will be able to purchase a March Madness Live virtual reality premium ticket for a virtual courtside seat experience for NCAA March Madness games where they have the option to completely control the viewing perspective or opt for a produced VR broadcast in their VR headset. More information on the NCAA March Madness Live VR app can be found on the NCAA website.
