Maybe there is life in VR for TV applications yet as Sling TV has become the first virtual multichannel video programming distributor (vMVPD) to launch on Oculus Go, the all-in-one wireless virtual reality (VR) headset.

Sling TV Oculus Go 2Sling TV says that the virtual reality experience on Oculus Go is equivalent to watching on a 180-inch television. Oculus Go features what are called premium optics with a fast-switch LCD display that renders at a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 and the headphone-free, built-in speakers deliver a 3-D, spatial audio experience.

Customised entertainment experiences, including the most popular sports, breaking news, TV series, movies and more will be available on Sling TV starting at $25 per month and for a limited time, new owners of the Oculus Go will receive an $80 credit toward Sling TV subscription services.

“No big screen, no room, no problem. Sling TV on Oculus Go gives customers an incredibly large screen, high-resolution experience anywhere they get a Wi-Fi connection, without the need to connect to a phone or PC,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, vice president, product management, Sling TV. “Oculus Go is a real game-changer in giving people a personal home theatre experience wherever they are, with its crystal-clear optics and portable design.”
