Verizon offers free roaming for the Winter Olympics if you sign up for rewards program

Big-Bang,Taeyang

Verizon has announced that it's waiving global roaming fees for customers who are going to attend the Winter Olympics.

And when they land on the top of the podium, they'll be wearing intensely warm gear that was unveiled Tuesday by Nike and the U.S. Olympic Committee on the "Today" show.

A great example of the type of data-intensive, immersive experiences Intel is uniquely able to make possible, Intel True VR will bring fans around the world closer to the action in PyeongChang in an interactive, virtual reality environment.

While VR is still a nascent technology, generally requiring dedicated hardware, programmers and advertisers are aggressively experimenting with the format, because of how immersive it is. Tessa Bonhomme will anchor studio coverage from NBC Sports Group's International Broadcast Center in Stamford, Conn., with Anson Carter and Erika Lawler.




In the case of the Olympics, the VR agenda is about testing some of the possibilities the format offers, and looking at how engaged users are, compared to those watching on TV. Among the events planned for live coverage are downhill skiing, figure skating and ice hockey. While the technology isn't mature enough to provide that air of reality, it would be interesting to see how it's received this time around and where the technology will stand in two years in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

A team of researchers, led by Daniel Scott, a geography professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, came to that conclusion by taking climate data from previous Winter Games locations and applying climate-change models to predict future winter weather conditions.

Earlier this week, YG Entertainment announced that Taeyang would be releasing a song entitled "Louder" for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, which will be held next month.

The Paralympic target is for at least seven medals, compared to six in Sochi.
