Digital Sport Discuss: Virtual & Augmented Reality, OTT and #DSManchester

Feb 01, 2018, 12:00 PM

Dan McLaren and Chris McMullan get together to discuss the upcoming 'topic of the month', which for February will be Virtual and Augmented Reality (and everything in between).

To help us understand this trend in sport, we get some insights from BBC Sport's Head of Digital & Radio, Ben Gallop. And also from Founder at SportsTechX & Head of Consulting at leAD Sports, Benjamin Penkert. 

Dan provides a bit of historical context to the term Virtual Reality, something that goes back a lot longer than you may have thought. And Chris takes a little look at the world of Augmented Reality, a technology that is more used than you may realise. 

If you want to get involved in the discussion by giving us your insights, or even getting us immersed in the technology (!), then get in touch at

Our events on this topic are almost upon us. Details can be found on;

13th Feb (London) -

21st Feb (Manchester) -
