HBO is entering the world of VR with apps for HBO Now and HBO Go that run on Daydream View, Google’s new virtual reality headset that’s compatible with certain Android-powered smartphones such as the new Pixel and Moto Z and Moto Z Force.
HBO’s apps – for its standalone OTT service and TV Everywhere offering – lets authenticated users watch original series such as Game of Thrones and Westworld on a 2D screen rendered in a 360-degree, digitally-rendered environment.
HBO’s new apps were among several new offerings that are being launched, or will be soon (Netflix, for example), for Daydream View, the $79 headset that became available last month.
