FOX SPORTS AND LIVELIKE TEAM TO PRESENT NO. 3 OHIO STATE AT NO. 14 OKLAHOMA LIVE THROUGH NEW VIRTUAL REALITY APP

GROUNDBREAKING EFFORT IS FIRST LIVE SPORTING EVENT AVAILABLE IN VR TO ALL IOS AND ANDROID USERS

Huge Non-Conference College Football Matchup Available in VR to 95 Million Homes

NEW YORK -Sept. 13, 2016 - For the first time ever, fans have the opportunity to watch a major sporting event live in virtual reality without special equipment through the FOX SPORTS VR app, a new offering from FOX Sports, powered by LiveLike. The huge non-conference college football showdown between No. 3 Ohio State and No. 14 Oklahoma on Saturday, Sept. 17 (7:30 p.m. ET, FOX broadcast network) is available to 95 million authenticated households through the new app, available for iOS and Android devices, making it the first live sporting event widely available in virtual reality.

Fans can access this first-of-its kind VR experience by downloading and installing the FOX SPORTS VR app and signing in with their television provider credentials the same way they currently enjoy streaming in FOX Sports GO, FOX Sports' TV-everywhere app. The VR experience can be enjoyed without any special VR equipment through the interactive, 360-degree viewing experience built specifically for mobile devices, or with a Gear VR or cardboard headset. The app includes:

· A robust, immersive VR experience which starts in a "Virtual Suite" in the stadium. Users can watch the game from the suite or choose among several on-field perspectives to get closer to the action.

· An in-stadium video board playing the live FOX Sports television broadcast, allowing users the opportunity to watch the synchronized telecast simultaneously with VR content.

· Users also have an opportunity to see full rosters, schedules and matchup stats from both teams on demand.

The FOX SPORTS VR app is powered by LiveLike, a virtual reality platform company enabling broadcasters and sports teams to deliver immersive, live sports viewing experiences. FOX Sports and LiveLike currently plan to team up for multiple games this college football season, beginning with Ohio State at Oklahoma.

"FOX Sports' commitment to innovation makes them the perfect company for us to work with as we roll out a VR experience that allows today's sports fan to lean-in and watch sports in an entirely new way," said Andre Lorenceau, founder and CEO, LiveLike. "The Oklahoma vs. Ohio State game represents the beginning of our relationship with FOX Sports, and we look forward to working with them to make the FOX SPORTS VR app an important destination in the sports viewing experience."

"LiveLike has a unique and compelling approach to the live-sports VR experience," said Devin Poolman, FOX Sports Senior Vice President of Digital Platforms. "We are thrilled to work with them to bring this new technology to our viewers, and it is particularly meaningful that this experience requires only an iPhone or Android device, allowing us to bring VR to a larger audience than ever before."

FOX Sports' ongoing technical innovation effort is a leading part of the FOX Sports Lab initiative, a collaborative approach to developing technical partnerships that offer fresh perspectives to viewers and innovative targeted sports integration opportunities to ad sales teams.

HOW TO WATCH THE GAME

Fans can watch Ohio State at Oklahoma by downloading the free FOX SPORTS VR app on iOS and on Android via iTunes, Google Play, Oculus Store, Samsung's Milk VR store, or visit foxsports.com/mobile. Message and data rates may apply.
