FandangoNOW launches VR app for Oculus

Fast-growing VOD FandangoNOW has launched its movie and TV store on Oculus VR devices.

Available on Oculus Go and Oculus Quest headsets in the US, the store provides access to over 90,000 movies and TV shows to rent and buy. The company says that in addition to regular films and shows, hundreds of 3D titles, including Spider-Man: Far from Home will be available to stream through the app.

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. 

“Our new initiative with Oculus will give fans a new and exciting way to explore, discover and truly immerse themselves in the movies, bringing them to new cinematic worlds they’ve never visited before.”

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

FandangoNOW joins the likes of Amazon and Netflix in launching dedicated apps for the Facebook-owned Oculus devices.
