Between the International Champions Cup or your favorite sporting team having a match, watching live events in VR can be quite rewarding. We all wish we could make it out to the stadiums and fields our favorite performers are in, but sometimes that's just not in the cards. But, don't you worry, the other option you have is to watch your favorite shows and sports in VR. Here you can feel like you're actually in the crowd without having to spend hundreds of dollars on tickets. Find it on Oculus here!.

Check out the live events coming to your Oculus Rift and HTC Vive in August!

Next VR

You can find the app for NextVR on your HTC Vive or your Oculus Rift. It offers countless wonders when it comes to watching live events in VR. One of the spectacular events they'll be covering for the rest of July, and into August, is the International Champions Cup. If you've been watching it on your TV instead of inside of your VR headset you're missing out! Outside of the ICC, you can also find a few comedy skits on the 26th and the 30th of July. Find it on Oculus here.

Outside of the live events listed below, you can also check out their line up for live sports. NextVR offers VR viewing for WWE, NFL, NBA, Boxing and even live concerts! You can see all of the channels they offer by clicking here.

YouTube live events

Another option you have to watch live events on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift is good ole' YouTube. All you have to do to find amazing live content, at any time, is search "Live Stream" in the search bar. Make sure you subscribe to your favorite live streamers so you can be notified next time they're live!

Oculus Venues

Oculus Venues is the most fun you'll have watching live events in VR. Not only does it put you in the crowd like you're really there, it puts you in a crowd of other viewers as well. Yes, this means you'll have seats in a stadium that you can give commentary, cheer or chat with during the events. People across the world are watching the same shows as you, so why not watch together? This takes bringing a community together to a whole new level.

If you prefer watching alone, no worries! The schedules for Oculus Venues almost mirror the schedules for NextVR entirely.
