I always get so hyped for the Summer Olympics. There is nothing like watching obscure sports played by athletes from around the world in front of a Global Audience once every 4 years. I can't get enough swimming, and of course I love to watch basketball, and the Olympics is the one time I actually enjoy watching soccer. I am not much for track and field, but my wife over the years has drawn me into watching the Gymnasts.

These are all things I would probably get bored with if I watched them for more than a few days. Samsung is hoping you will be interested in watching these events over and over again with their VR coverage. They have just announced a deal with NBC to provide exclusive VR coverage. The only downside is if you want to watch these through Gear VR you will have to wait one day. There will be 85 hours of content. I will definitely be checking this out.
