Last year Hulu promised that it would release an app for Gear VR. At the time we thought it might arrive before the end of the year in 2015 but Hulu has just released its virtual reality app today, almost three months into the new year. Better late than never. Fans of VR will like what it is offering.
This is the first app of the several that Hulu will create for different platforms. The Hulu app for Gear VR gives users access to the entire 2D Hulu library in a 360 degree environment. There’s a collection of VR content too, including one original title, which will give you a truly immersive experience.
Right now there are over 25 VR titles available on Hulu from channels like Spoke, Studio Transcendent, Viacom, Showtime, Discovery, The National Geographic Channel and more. The 3D VR content will be open to all app users even if they don’t have a Hulu subscription. Just be awre that Hulu’s VR app only works on the Gear VR, a virtual reality headset that’s only compatible with the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S6. Hulu currently has plans to release more VR films, shorts and environments on a regular basis so you have a lot of content.
