FandangoNow, the video-on-demand service offered by movie-ticket site Fandango, is launching its movie and TV digital store on Oculus Go and Quest. The new store provides Oculus users with access to FandangoNow’s collection of more than 90,000 new-release and catalog movies and next-day TV shows with no subscription fees.
Hundreds of 3D titles, including Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: Far From Home, will be available to stream through FandangoNow on the Oculus headset in front of a virtual gigantic screen in the comfort of their own homes.
“We are constantly looking for innovative ways to deliver high-quality entertainment to movie and TV fans on pioneering platforms,” said Fandango president Paul Yanover. “Our new initiative with Oculus will give fans a new and exciting way to explore, discover and truly immerse themselves in the movies, bringing them to new cinematic worlds they’ve never visited before.”
“We know how much people love experiencing media in VR,” said Oculus head of media Colum Slevin. “The immersive nature of VR along with the extensive catalog of 3D and traditional films coming with FandangoNow is a winning combination.”
FandangoNow is available on Oculus Go, the all-in-one VR headset designed for consuming entertainment, and Oculus Quest, Facebook’s all-in-one gaming headset.
