Partnering with AltspaceVR, the broadcaster offers another way for Americans to engage with the election season

AltspaceVR, a virtual reality software company that creates digital spaces and events for VR users, is collaborating with NBC News to stream the American Presidential Debates in VR. NBC News will digitize Rockefeller Plaza into the “Virtual Democracy Plaza,” an interactive space for viewers and their digital avatars to watch the debates and conduct live Q&A discussions with political experts. Guests across various NBC properties like Al Roker and Sharon Epperson will also make appearances. Users can also join smaller independent activities, as well as host their own spaces. For political enthusiasts without VR equipment, a 2D virtual plaza can be joined with a computer.
