If you want to watch Hulu in virtual reality, you can. You’re no longer limited to the Gear VR. The Hulu VR app has been available for Samsung’s VR headset for a while, but now there’s another way to enjoy Hulu. The app is now available for the Oculus Rift VR headset.
Hulu promises that their app provides a sharper and highly responsive viewing experience on this headset.
Hulu has also introduced a new and immersive virtual environment for fans of Syfy’s 12 Monkeys to watch the entire first season. All you have to do is navigate to the 12 Monkeys show page and it will automatically transport you to the Temporal Facility where the time machine is housed in the show.
To create this space, Hulu teamed up with the show’s executive producer Terry Matalas and production designer John Mott. This space includes real-time rendered environments and animations which give viewers the feeling of being in the show. How cool is that? The future is here. We can actually be inside of our favorite shows now. People have been waiting for this technology for ages and we have it now.
Hulu is going to create more spaces like this for viewers so prepare for more. Right now users can access more than 30 pieces of original virtual reality content via the Oculus Rift app for free even without a Hulu subscription. Plus, Hulu’s entire library of 2D content can also be streamed in immersive 3D settings via the app. Hulu is doing an awesome job here.
