Amazon Is Bringing Prime Video to Oculus VR Headsets
Oculus VR headset users just got one more video service to watch in their virtual living rooms: Amazon’s Prime Video service went live on OculusGo, Quest and Samsung Gear VR headsets with a dedicated Prime Video VR app Wednesday
In addition to access to the entire Prime Video catalog, Prime Video VR will also feature select 360-degree video films. At launch, these include “Invasion!” from Baobab Studios and “Greenland Melting” from Frontline and NOVA, according to a blog post.
The app offers users a way to watch Prime Video titles in a virtual theater setting, and also comes with voice search for the entire Prime catalog. Prime Video VR is at launch only available to Prime subscribers in the U.S. and the U.K., but there does seem to be a way for users who aren’t Prime subscribers to browse their Amazon Video purchases.
