CNN brings its VR news app to the Oculus Rift

CNN has partnered with interactive entertainment company Magnapus, the company behind the Coco VR experience, to launch a VR app for its virtual reality news stories on the Oculus Rift.

The VR app was previously available on iOS and Android to use with Google Daydream and Samsung Gear handsets, but this is the first time it will become available on a desktop VR setup.


Previously, users have been able to watch some CNN 360-degree content on the Oculus Rift, including last year’s solar eclipse. Now CNN is adding CNNVR support for the desktop handset will allow users to see the network’s virtual reality content in greater resolution. According to the press release, the Oculus Rift version of the CNNVR app will come with 360-degree 4K content with a news ticker at the bottom. It will be launching with 100 videos from the network’s VR team.
