Netflix Hulu Virtual Reality VR Apps

 

The video on demand streaming services have both announced plans to launch new virtual-reality apps that will give users the ability to consumer content in 3D. On Thursday at the Oculus Connect conference in Hollywood, it was revealed that Netflix has teamed with Facebook’s Oculus VR to develop an app for Samsung Gear VR.  The app, which launched Thursday, features a component called “Netflix Living Room” that activates a user interface designed for the virtual-reality headset. In essence, members can get the Netflix experience on a virtual couch while wearing their Gear VR headset.
