  • Oculus TV is the VR set-top streaming box you never knew you the launch of the Oculus Go headset today, Oculus announced that it is working on a new element of its in-headset experience that will appeal to users interested in binging TV inside VR.
  • Its called Oculus TV and the company hopes that it will evolve to become a quick-and-easy way for VR users, by themselves or with friends, to dive into video content from streaming partners.
  • The company says it is currently working with networks to bring native integrations, but given that Netflix, Hulu and Showtime already have standalone apps in the Oculus store, this could be a challenge as VR viewership for them is likely quite tiny.
  • Youll still be able to dive into these apps from the Oculus TV interface, but itll just send you to that app rather than being an on-screen interface.
  • Oculus didnt have this feature quite ready for F8, but the company says Oculus TV will be launching later this month for Oculus Go.

  • You can think of the Oculus Go as a self-contained version of the Gear VR.
  • OLED has pretty much become the standard in every VR headset, due to its responsiveness, but Oculus claims that this LCD technology is similarly speedy.
  • Like the Gear VR, the Go supports three degrees of freedom, meaning it can track your head movements.
  • And, unlike with a smartphone, you can’t really use a VR headset with a cracked display.
  • The included motion controller feels like an evolution of the Gear VR’s — it’s light and fits into the contours of your hand.
