This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Day One of Oculus Connect 6 in San Jose, CA featured a bunch of exciting announcements for both the Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S headsets.

Hidden within this pile of breaking news was the launch of FandangoNow, a dedicated VR app for the Oculus Quest and Oculus Go.

Earlier today, FandangoNow went live for all Oculus standalone headsets, allowing you to rent, buy or stream over 90,000 movies, TV shows, movie trailers, and indie projects from numerous high-profile studios.

On top of standard movies and shows, you’ll also have access to hundreds of 3D films, such as Marvel and SONY’s Spiderman: Far From Home.

In an official press release, Fandango president Paul Yanover said, “We are constantly looking for innovative ways to deliver high-quality entertainment to movie and TV fans on pioneering platforms.”

FandangoNow’s new partnership with Oculus opens up new and exciting opportunities for people to explore, discover, and immerse themselves into major studio content.

“We know how much people love experiencing media in VR,” said Oculus head of media, Colum Slevin, adding, “The immersive nature of VR along with the extensive catalog of 3D and traditional films coming with FandangoNow is a winning combination.”

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
