Samsung teams up with MLB to bring more VR content to fans

Samsung has extended their relationship with Major League Baseball (MLB) to offer more virtual reality experiences to fans.

The new VR content will offer “immersive access” to players, ballparks and key baseball moments throughout the 2017 season. It will also allow fans to become face to face with their favourite players and “unrivalled views” of iconic ballparks.

All of this new content is accessible via the Samsung VR app, which is found on Samsung’s flagship smartphones like the Galaxy S8/S8+, S7 and more.

“Through our partnership with MLB, we’re taking sports entertainment to the next level with new VR experiences that get fans closer to the game and right into the action,” said Mark Childs, Chief Marketing Office, Samsung Canada.

There will also be content that was captured by Samsung’s Gear 360 cameras to be viewed on a Gear VR headset or on Samsung’s website at

The partnership between Samsung and MLB is multinational, meaning it will be available to fans in Canada, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan and the U.S.
