If watching traditional coverage of the upcoming Democratic and Republican National Conventions sounds a little too ho-hum, you'll get the chance to spice things up this year with VR. YouTube has announced that it will be providing live streams of both conventions with 360-degree video.

YouTube to stream Republican and Democratic conventions in 360 degrees

Additionally, YouTube plans to put popular content creators to work with added coverage from the convention floors:

Look out for coverage from The Young Turks, Complex News, Seeker Daily, Ingrid Nilsen, Mark Watson, Julie Borowski and more. These creators, along with other news organizations, will report back to their communities using new tools including mobile live streaming and Jump VR cameras, so you will have nonstop coverage from a variety of perspectives.

In any event, you'll be able to check out live streams of the Republican convention starting July 18, along with the Democratic convention starting July 25.
