Hulu Virtual Reality Application Launching Soon

Category: Software
Posted: 06:33PM

Tim Connolly, the Head of Distribution at Hulu, has announced that the company’s virtual reality application is expected to launch next month alongside the release of the Gear VR headset that Samsung is making available for just $99. The application will allow Hulu viewers to experience content in an entirely new way through the use of a reasonably inexpensive device. Hulu is planning to be one of the major companies that supports virtual reality, with the online streaming service even considering the commission of original series that are available only in virtual reality. Hulu is also thinking about the possibility of offering immersive environments relating to its 2D video, allowing viewers to view content within and inside of various scenes. Connolly noted that "We think this is a smart bet that helps position us as an innovator and helps us learn earlier on what could be a substantive storytelling environment."
