By making the content available in VR, NBC looks to appeal to a wider audience and buck the trend of declining Olympics viewership.

Programming will span every day of the Games - with the exception of Feb. 18 - beginning the day of the Opening Ceremony on Friday, Feb. 9, and concluding with the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 25. Folks using Samsung, Google, Windows, and Android and iOS devices will be able to access the content via the NBC Sports VR app. NBC hopes to hedge against future viewership declines by increasing its presence on VR, which is becoming more prevalent among consumers - global VR headset shipments reached an all-time high in Q3 2017, with shipments topping 1 million for the first time ever in the quarter, according to Canalys.
