Breakthrough In Sports Viewing
Breakthrough In Sports Viewing - Follow Race On Your Ipod
Free Video Updates Now on iTunes from Virtual Spectator
For the first time, sailing fans have their sport in the palm of their hands. In a dramatic breakthrough in sports viewing, Virtual Spectator announces free Video iPod podcast downloads on iTunes (http://www.itunes.com).
"VS Report with Gary Jobson" gives Volvo Ocean Race viewers a first hand, in-depth look at the around-the-world race with comprehensive expert commentary by America's Cup-winning sailor and Emmy-winning journalist Gary Jobson, video footage from aboard the racing Volvo 70s and cutting-edge graphic animation from Virtual Spectator's 3D VS Raceviewer.
"This caliber of coverage is an exciting improvement for fans, particularly in sailing where video coverage tends to be light," said Douglas L. King, visionary CEO and Chairman of Virtual Spectator. "We're pushing the envelope in sports entertainment by bringing global sailing fans innovative programming through the Internet and now though the iPod."
Virtual Spectator recently launched the website http://www.vssailing.com where sailing fans can download the 3D VS Raceviewer, allowing users to experience the race in 3D, watch "VS Report with Gary Jobson" streaming from the Internet, and download the updated and archived VS Reports to their iPod from iTunes.
Virtual Spectator is quickly changing how sports can adapt to provide content to a global base of fans around the world. With the advent of mobile entertainment such as the iPod, users can download podcasts like the "VS Report with Gary Jobson," and enjoy quality sports programming from virtually any location.
World-class sailor turned award-winning broadcaster Gary Jobson said, "What Virtual Spectator has done with the Volvo Ocean Race is a model for our sport as a spectator event. In our mobile society, to take a race of this size and magnitude and offer unique video highlights to keep fans around the world entertained and updated through their iPods is an incredible opportunity no sporting event should ignore."
Curtis Worthy of Virtual Spectator stated, "Gary Jobson is a legend in sailing. His expertise and insight provides depth and excitement to the race that'll have fans using their iPods for sailing as well as music."
Sailing is now added to the VS family of sports available as a podcast on iTunes. Last month, Virtual Spectator released "VS Reports: Squash" with the "Voice of Squash" Robert Edwards for the Virtual Spectator Bermuda Masters.
