Netflix App Available on Samsung VR Gear, Vimeo and Hulu Coming Soon

evolveteam September 25, 2015 0

Now that Samsung has finally gotten around to releasing a consumer friendly version of their Virtual Reality headset, VR Gear, and set it at a very affordable $99, the mainstream demand for quality content is going to kick in to high gear. Netflix is already on board.

Sitting in the VR app store is the Netflix app, so binge watches can rest more easily. Vimeo and Twitch are coming soon, and Hulu is reported to be out by the end of the year. Hulu has already stated they will offer VR original content, while Netflix is presently only offering the standard videos in the new format. We can assume that Twitch will provide the same style content, unless they can figure out how to convert non-VR streamed content into virtual reality at the end user level.

New devices, especially those that hold the potential for shifting how we access our entertainment, need to have features and content to make even attractive price points worth it. Samsung is trying to get it right, from the beginning.
