Fox Sports and NextVR Sign Deal for Virtual Reality Sports Coverage

NextVR and Fox Sports signed a five-year deal that will see virtual reality coverage of Fox-carried sports events. The two have tested such programming in HD virtual reality coverage of the Premier Boxing Championships and the Auto Club 400 NASCAR race and have a planned test of Sunday's Daytona 500. The two said future announcements of virtual reality programming on Fox Sports will be forthcoming and available on the NextVR portal, which will have a dedicated Fox Sports section.

Craig James Sues Fox Sports over Firing

Craig James filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against Fox Sports that contends he was fired because he had expressed opposition to gay marriage during a failed run for the U.S. Senate. The former running back for Southern Methodist University and the New England Patriots is seeking at least $100,000 in damages. Fox hired him in August 2013 - months after he lost the Texas Senate primary to Ted Cruz - only to fire him days later. James filed his suit in Dallas County, where he is seeking a jury trial to hear claims against the network that include breach of contract and violations of state law. Fox Sports did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on the lawsuit, and a Dallas attorney for the network did not immediately return a call for comment.
