Watch PyeongChang Olympcs on the Vive

Hello Vive Community,

 

Intel annouced that they'll be streaming, Live and VOD, events in VR from PyeongChang. It is an exciting VR time yet I haven't found a way to watch on the Vive.

 

Events of interest: Men's Slopestyle & Halfpipe, Downhill, and Skeleton.

 

Anyone know of a link or info on how Olympic VR events can be watched on the Vive?

 

I've search the Viveport community, Steam, and a multitude of Google searches. NBC's VR Broadcast page shows a kid with a Vive headset yet no instructions for the Vive. Just other devices.

 

Thanks in advance.

@TobyB,

Thanks for pointing this out! We're looking into this. A cursory read through of the webpage makes it sound like they only created an Oculus/Windows executable.

Awesome @VibrantNebula, thanks for taking a look into it, and for the ReVive suggestion. I'll have to look into that and post a follow up.

I agree, Intel's and NBC's advertising seems to suggest that the content is "just for" the Oculus.

More of this is exactly what we need from the Vive community.  Upvoted for visibilty.  Also plant to update again with findings!

 

If the Olympics are meant to bridge together nations there is no reason we should be discriminated against watching it due to the hardware we are using.
