Samsung-Gear-VR-07A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that several companies would be creating virtual reality apps for the Samsung Gear VR. One of those companies was Hulu who promised that they would be bringing video content to the virtual reality headset, delivering what we can only imagine is a new experience of watching shows.

However the question here is when will the app be launched? Turns out if you have a Gear VR and can’t wait, you might be pleased to learn that Hulu’s app for the Gear VR is set for a launch in November, next month. This is according to a report from CNET in which Hulu’s head of distribution, Tim Connolly said, “We’re ready to go.”

That being said with virtual reality being pegged as the next big thing and very possibly the last medium, Hulu has stated that they are interested in creating original series that will be filmed specifically for virtual reality, and that there will not be a 2D element to it, suggesting that Hulu will indeed be having a huge vested interest in the technology taking off.

Other apps and video streaming services that are expected to make its way onto the Gear VR include Netflix and Twitch. It’s certainly starting to look like the virtual reality revolution has kicked off big time.
