As the development in VR world continues, we are being blessed with all-new content which we can enjoy in virtual reality. From games to apps to porn -everything is coming on VR and things are getting better. One of the most popular streaming service has now made its way to VR and it’s Hulu.
Hulu first announced its plan to enter the VR world back in September last year. Taking its time to polish things up, Hulu delayed its VR debut by a few months. But Hulu will no longer keep us waiting as its VR app is now available for Samsung Gear VR via Oculus Store.
VR lets the content creators transport you into their world – to help you feel what it is like to be present, to be in the moment.
Hulu will provide access to its entire 2D library in a 360-degree environment. Hulu has also introduced exclusive original content for VR. “We are thrilled with the current range of VR films available to stream in the Hulu app, and will be looking to continually add more content over time,” said Hulu via a press release.
At launch, Hulu’s VR app contains more than 25 pieces of exclusive and premium content from Baobab Studios, Discovery Communications, Las Vegas, The National Geographic Channel, RYOT, Showtime Networks, SilVR Thread, Spoke, Studio Transcendent, The Uprising Creative and Viacom.
We are at the very beginning of VR and like everyone involved in VR technology and content [and] we are super excited about our first steps into VR.
Hulu VR App also features Hulu’s first originally produced VR short film titled “The Big One”. “The Big One invites users to witness a meteor shower that soon turns into an apocalyptic nightmare,” Hulu’s press release stated.
