Used this for the Germany game and loved it. For a first attempt its way better than I expected. Obviously the resolution takes a hit. But the big VR TV helps with the close ups and replays. My new preferred way to watch the World Cup.

Improvements- The game time and score needs adding. And the slight delay in changing cameras should resume from when it cut off. Don’t wanna miss a goal etc. Other than that, it’s awesome.

Just about to get my headset ready for the England game.

You had ages to announce this and you leave it a day late.

This blog is going downhill again.

yes but VR sets were on offer last week they are back to normal price again after the 18th of June maybe ?

2.2

What has this got to do with the app?

They announced it yesterday before the first England game! Also, it’s been advertised everywhere anyways. No offense but all you ever seem to do is moan. Its becoming predictable.

Roll on the next FREE GT Sport update so you can have a good rant that the whole game needs to be VR or no sale.

I live in France can i use this app I can download it but normaly watch BBC on freesat ? I seem to get into the lounge but that was all ?
