Back in June, Oculus launched its Oculus TV app, a dedicated hub for watching flatscreen 2D shows and movies from various streaming providers in virtual reality, on the standalone Oculus Go headset. Now, Sling TV, ESPN (including ESPN+), and Fox Now are joining the lineup, allowing more ways to watch live TV, sports and on-demand content on the Go.
Oculus Go owners will need a subscription to access each streaming service, but Oculus is offering an $80 credit towards Sling TV with the purchase and activation of any Oculus Go headset between now and January 15th, 2019.
The Sling TV streaming service includes available access to more than 100 live channels, including AMC, CNN, and the Disney Channel, while ESPN offers a wide range of sports-related content alongside its on-demand streaming service ESPN+, which allows sports fans to watch thousands of live sporting events, including MLB, NHL, MLS, international soccer, college sports, boxing, tennis, rugby and more. In addition, FOX NOW supports streaming its popular library of on-demand content, like 9-1-1, The Resident, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Hell’s Kitchen, and Empire, as well as stream live sports from FOX Sports and FS1.
