Hulu and Netflix are jumping on the virtual reality train. All aboard, early adopters.

Both streaming video services will soon offer virtual reality apps that let users explore content and watch what they want in 3D virtual spaces. Netflix is up first, with an app launching in the Gear VR store on Thursday, just hours after it was announced on stage at Oculus Connect.

While the video itself plays inside the headset on a virtual screen — banish all hopes of stepping into your favorite TV show or movie, at least for now — the app’s browsing interface is an interactive “Netflix Living Room.” This is a valuable feather in Netflix’s cap, marking the “first” subscription video app for VR and yet another platform for the ubiquitous service.

Virtual reality startup Jaunt reportedly raised $50M-plus funding round

Jaunt's VR view of a Paul McCartney console.

Jaunt has reportedly raised more than $ 50 million in a third round of funding, according to a report in Variety. The funding, if confirmed, is another sign that investors are very interested in the disruptive potential of virtual reality, which immerses you in virtual worlds.

Tech advisor Digi-Capital estimates that virtual reality will be a $ 30 billion market (within the larger $ 150 billion market of virtual reality and augmented reality) by 2020.

Variety reported that the exact number wasn’t available, but it cited multiple unnamed sources. The funding follows a $ 27.8 million round that Jaunt raised last year to create non-gaming virtual reality content, such as 360-degree videos that immerse you in events such as a Paul McCartney concert.

Previous Jaunt investors include Highland Capital Partners, Redpoint Ventures, Google Ventures, BSkyB and others.

Jaunt has unveiled its own VR camera, which can be used to film in all directions at the same time. Jaunt’s own film studio in Los Angeles is headed by former Lucasfilm chief technology officer Cliff Plumer.
