Apple Immersive Video Featuring 2023 MLS Playoffs Coming to Vision Pro Tonight

Apple today plans to release an Apple Immersive Video that features the best of the 2023 MLS Cup Playoffs. It is the first-ever sports film captured in Apple Immersive Video, and it will be available on the Vision Pro headset.

Apple MLS partnership June 2022
Apple in February said that the MLS Playoffs were recorded in 8K 3D with a 180-degree field of view and Spatial Audio, giving viewers the opportunity to feel "every heart-pounding moment" of the playoffs.

As Jason Snell from Six Colors points out, Apple's video is being released 110 days after the 2023 MLS Cup Final, which is quite the wait. The video is also just five minutes long.

The MLS documentary is set to premiere on the Vision Pro at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time or 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time tonight.

Just watched it too. Unbelievable. You are there. I mean THERE. This is it. This is the killer experience. And I don’t even watch soccer. Now, full games. All games. Every sport. Just like this. Concerts. Theatre. Hell…Congress. I’ve never once regretted buying the VP…and after watching this, the notion is laughable.

As someone who is not into soccer, or have ever owned any type of 3d headsets, this sounds pretty sweet....They've got me interested.

This could be the start of what’s to come. Hopefully years from now this will have evolved to the point that entire broadcasts are shot this way.
