Oculus Cinema now Oculus Video on Gear VR

Oculus Video Feature

Oculus Cinema is, or rather was, the app on Samsung’s mobile Virtual Reality device that provided a full cinema experience.  Until now, owners of the Samsung Gear VR had access to just a handful of trailers and personal movies that could be transferred to the cinema with a bit of tech savvy.  You can now update Oculus Cinema to the new Oculus Video App if you own a Gear VR.  Free access to the entire catalog of Twitch/Vimeo and a host of movies that you can buy are available now.  Future plans include adding a social element to this and the ability to rent movies.

Below is a video uploaded to YouTube by vrgamerdude showing off the functionality of Oculus Video.  He goes a bit more in depth into the features of Twitch and Vimeo.

What’s New

  • You can now buy movies (with rentals coming soon)
  • 2-D and 3-D films with prices ranging from $8.99 to $29.99
  • The entire Twitch and Vimeo catalog of videos available for free (no social features yet)
  • A 360° videos section (what will come of the 360 videos app?)
  • Section with free video shorts from places like Red Giant
  • Option to be notified on your mobile device when new content is added to Oculus Video

Movies Currently Available (prices subject to change)

Here are the list of all movies currently available as of October 10th, 2015.  I have linked to the reviews on IMDb for each of the movies.  Most of the content is composed of action, horror, and animated flicks, with the strangely out of place Les Miserables thrown in there, as well as My Sassy Girl.  Oculus is getting ready to bring out Oculus Social on the Gear VR, which will hopefully let you watch the movies you purchased with friends in a social setting.
