Amazon Prime Video in Virtual Reality

Mozilla's mixed reality browser Firefox Reality went live on Facebook's Oculus Quest VR headset Thursday, offering users an alternative to the built-in Oculus browser. Plus you can even find it all using voice-powered search. In the announcement, they confirmed that this service would work with Amazon Prime and that users would be able to view all their favorite movies and shows from in a personal theater. Things aren't helped by companies finding it hard to make a profit from content: Despite having Facebook's considerable financial resources to draw upon, Oculus VR closed its in-house content division back in May 2017 in favour of 'funding and supporting' external content creators instead.

Prime Video VR is available to users in the United States and UK from today.

The new service, named Prime Video VR, offers everything in the Amazon Prime library for display in a private virtual setting, including ordinary 2-D TV shows and movies, as well as a new curated selection of 360-degree videos.

A handful of VR-specific videos, though, will be made available in interactive 3D, Oculus VR has promised - but, sadly, this will be limited to just ten videos at launch, and will only be accessible by Prime members.

The full library of Prime Video content, including titles such as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Good Omens and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, is available to watch in a virtual cinema.
