The NBA was the first major American professional sporting league to broadcast through VR, and now they’re presenting a cheaper on-demand option that will make it easier to experience the game. The option will allow fans to get access to the VR League Pass for a starting rate of $7 per game.

The virtual reality feature arrives at a perfect time as the platform, NextVR, will offer free virtual reality highlights from this weekend’s NBA All-Star Game held in New Orleans, La. You’ll be able to catch everything from the three-point contest to the dunk exhibition, and every minute of the All-Star Game.
