The free digital television channel, operated by Real Madrid, Real Madrid TV, is offering an augmented reality viewing option through a new partnership between streaming company Cinedigm and AR glasses maker Nreal. Cinedigm had inked a deal with the Spanish soccer club last year to introduce Real Madrid TV in the US and Canada.
The Nreal Light glasses feature two spatial computing cameras that can project a virtual 220-inch HD display comparable to an IMAX theater experience. The device requires the users to connect it to an Android smartphone that can be used as a controller to navigate the TV experience. Nreal had partnered with Verizon in December to bring its AR glasses to the US market at a price of $600.
Real Madrid TV streams 2 to 3 matches per week during the La Liga season along with UEFA Champions League matches. The platform is available in English and Spanish and also provides access to club news conferences, training sessions, and classic match replays.
