Discovery has launched a video streaming platform combining the worlds of 360-video OTT and virtual reality. The service is launched through a YouTube channel having a raft of 360 video content from digital content specialists. The discovery team will travel the world to collect 360 and VR experiences for the channel.
The seeker platform was launched early this year bringing together DNews, TestTube, Seeker Stories and Revision3. The platform is targeted towards young millennials. The new experiences will be Rhinos on the Move, Hearing Colors and Edge of the Earth (pictured), which follows a weather balloon to the outer reaches of the earth’s atmosphere.
