2 VR Shows Are Coming To Hulu

According to Variety, Hulu is getting 2 new exclusive series made for virtual reality, courtesy of the Huffington Post’s RYOT Studios. Hulu’s VR app is going to feature a news program called “The Big Picture: News in Virtual Reality” as well as new VR comedy show called “Virtually Mike and Nora” starring Nora Kirkpatrick and Mike O’Brien this fall. RYOT Studios has been producing VR programming for partners like the AP and the New York Times as well as Huffington Post’s own 360-degree video initiative in the past.New episodes of the news program will be published on Hulu’s VR app every 2 weeks, and each episode will feature 3 different news segments. Hulu first introduced its VR app for Samsung’s Gear VR in March, and has also brought it to the Oculus Rift, with plans to launch on additional devices soon. Should be interesting to see how this pans outs. Not sure how I feel about a VR show. Seems like it will be kinda hard to force on when you can look all over the place. Thoughts ?
