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.

This effort will mark the first time ever that VR will be available for a Winter Olympics and that Olympic VR programming will be live in the U.S on a wide range of devices and platforms.

Of the six funded Olympic sports, three were challenged with delivering medals: curling (one to two), ski and snowboard (two to three) and short-track speed skating (one to two).

NBC hopes to hedge against future viewership declines by increasing its presence on VR, which is becoming more prevalent among consumers - global VR headset shipments reached an all-time high in Q3 2017, with shipments topping 1 million for the first time ever in the quarter, according to Canalys.
