NextVR, the company broadcasting live events in virtual reality and providing sports content, is launching on PlayStation VR, a virtual reality system that works with PlayStation 4.

The collaboration enables NextVR to reach a wider audience, and it was announced the same week when its content became available on Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

“We’re committed to offer the NextVR app on more platforms for fans to experience our live events in virtual reality,” NextVR CEO David Cole said in a statement. “PS VR boosts the overall experience, and is a great platform to showcase our content. The opportunity to reach the PlayStation audience gives us the chance to create memorable experiences for a  new class of fans.”

NextVR is beginning its second year of broadcasting a schedule of live virtual reality NBA League Pass games on Saturday with the Dallas Mavericks facing the Houston Rockets. Also, the NextVR Screening Room enables every NBA League Pass game this season to be viewed on a virtual movie theater-sized screen.

NextVR’s other partnerships include highlights deals with the NFL and International Champions Cup. The NFL has yet to broadcast a game live in VR whereas the ICC has done both live games and highlights.
