    Not sure if they are creating an app. I think they are just producing videos and already have. I'm sure there was a formula 1 video out some months ago?

    Bet they charge for it at the start. They usually do. I remember when sky go first came out and it cost a fiver. Was paying it for over a year after it became free and only just got my dosh back. Money grabbing so and so's !!!!

    Here is what it says on sky's home page =


    The app is available now from Google Play Store, Apple App Store or via "Oculus Home". Compatible headsets include Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift or any other VR headset attached to an iOS 8.1/Android 4.4 smartphone.

    Maybe it'll be uploaded later ? Can you confirm @cybereality

    Just tried it, similar stuff if not better on youtube.
  • Hiro_Protag0nistHiro_Protag0nist Posts: 4,690 Valuable Player
    Yep, tried it - just a load of little clips, adverts for films.

    Unfortunately it suffers from lack of thought - click on download and you must stay watching it download, if you go elsewhere in the app the download stops - p1ss poor.

    Also, the delete button doesn't work - you click on the bin at the top, a cancel and delete option comes up, only the cancel option works.

    Just a little feedback, Sky.

    It's nothing exciting at all.  Seems like nothing more than an interface to see a very low and boring selection of 360 videos.

    I'm hoping when tech catches up with sky we might see some exciting stuff. I've been with sky for 20 plus years and I'm sure when they get there then something good will come of it :)

    Sky TV is amazing and they have the money to do something much better than this.

    The tech is there - the Obama video proves that.

    Then they outsourced to the wrong team to build their Oculus Home app. Hell, I could have done a better job than that...

    Agreed.

    Just tried this out again.  Come on Oculus!  You now have to log in with your Sky ID - i have one, tried to log in but it just hangs with a spinning circle.

    Poor, very poor.
