Netflix Released On Gear VR
Why not sit down, relax and watch some Netflix? The streaming service that’s available on many devices has finally come to VR via the Gear VR. Max Cohen, Head of Mobile at Oculus, announced at this years Oculus Connect that Netflix will be available on the Gear VR today.
The app is available to download right now through the Oculus Store app. The app is similar to the Oculus Movie Theatre app; you are placed in a virtual living room where you can watch and browse the shows / movies through your Netflix account. There are options to adjust the size of the virtual screen and remove the virtual room to watch on a floating screen in a dark void.
Along with Netflix, additional streaming services are coming to the Gear VR including Twitch, hulu and Vimeo.

Now if you will excuse me I’m going to watch some Bojack Horseman in my own private virtual living room.
