Hulu’s new Gear VR app lets you get closer to your favorite shows
If you’ve already burned through Pornhub’s library of free virtual reality videos and you’re after something new, you’ll be pleased to know that Hulu is now available on Samsung Gear VR.
The app lets viewers get closer to their favorite shows, with 360-degree videos from Discovery, National Geographic, and Showtime.
Hulu announced back in September that it was planning to support Gear VR, but its app was delayed for several months. Now it’s finally here, and you can download it from the Oculus store within Gear VR, or using the Oculus app on your Samsung Galaxy device.
Once installed, you’ll have access to around 30 non-exclusive videos made for VR, including an original short called The Big One, which is about a meteor shower that poses a threat to life on Earth. Hulu plans to add more VR content later, some of which you won’t find elsewhere.
The good news is that all of Hulu’s VR content is currently free to those without a Hulu Plus subscription. The bad news, according to Variety, is that the company is pondering several ways in which it can monetize it.
Go enjoy it now before it’s ruined by ads!
