No fans, no problems says FOX TV. Virtual reality fans are coming to a TV near you.
This month on the Party in the Back Podcast we will look how several leagues are addressing the lack of fans at the venue. Audio prompts, cardboard cutouts, logos, virtual reality and all things in between.
On TV Fox thought it was important enough to augment reality with fans who react to the action. Their motives aren’t game related, but highlight the value of fans and how quiet stadiums feel without the energy provided by fans.
No fans? Not on FOX Sports.
