North Korea offered to hold a working-level meeting with South Korea next week to discuss details of its plan to send an art troupe to the South during next month's PyeongChang Winter Olympics, the unification ministry said Saturday.

Official confirmation from the International Olympic Committee is yet to be received. Not only will this be the first time that any Winter Olympics has been captured in VR, but it will also be the first time that Olympic programming in VR will be streamed live in the US across a plethora of devices and platforms.

Taeyang is one of several Korean singers to be featured as an honorary ambassador for Pyeongchang 2018, along with opera singer Jo Sumi, Insooni, Jinusean's Sean, Girl's Day, AOA, and CNBlue's Jung Yonghwa.

The best part about NBC's VR streams is that unlike the Summer Olympics where the VR content was available exclusively on Samsung headsets, this time around, it will be made available on a wide range of devices and platforms.

For PyeongChang, the opening and closing ceremonies will be streamed in VR, as will alpine skiing, snowboarding, curling, skeleton, figure skating, ice hockey and ski jumping, among other sports. According to Variety, NBC has partnered with Intel to set up multiple camera pods to create interactive 360-degree VR environments. "With the help of Intel's industry-leading virtual reality technology, NBC Olympics will deliver a transformative experience that will bring to Olympic fans an entirely new perspective on the speed, thrills and excitement of an Olympic Winter Games".

NBC will air over 50 hours of live VR coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics to U.S. pay-TV subscribers, Variety reports. No word yet on whether NBC's Olympics coverage in VR will feature VR advertising as well.
