Apple TV can now play 360-degree video content

“While Apple may jump into the virtual reality fray in the near to long term, for now owners of the new Apple TV can experience 360-degree video content from Littlstar without needing a virtual reality headset,” John Gaudiosi reports for Fortune.

“The free app is the first to offer Apple TV users access to the thousands of 360-degree short-form videos that are being developed for virtual reality headsets like Samsung Gear VR and next year’s launches of Facebook-owned Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Sony PlayStation VR,” Gaudiosi reports. “Using the Siri remote, users can navigate within a 360-degree video to explore all perspectives. Apple iPad and iPhone owners can use built-in accelerometers to navigate 360-degree video as well.”

“Apple enters this arena with a global installed base of over 25 million Apple TVs worldwide. The company just shipped the latest iteration of the Apple TV on Oct. 26, and J.P. Morgan analyst Rod Hall forecasts global sales of 24 million of these new devices in 2016,” Gaudiosi reports. “According to a recent consumer survey by Greenlight VR, 75% of people who own a connected TV said they are interested in viewing more 360-degree content.”

  1. You don’t need Samsung’s VR gear for this; you can get Google Cardboard viewer for well under $10, and it will work with any iPhone.

    Content is sparse, although there are several VR video games that seem to work quite well on the iPhone. As a curiosity, this is quite interesting and, because it can be quite cheap (with those Google Cardboard viewers), there is a potential for a market, therefore some momentum.

    I’m still rather skeptical…

      1. I’m sure it is cool, and it is really great that VR content can be played on the new AppleTV with the touch remote.

        The VR viewers for mobile phones add the true VR dimension, though. The built-in gyroscopic sensors allow the movement of the image to sync with the movement of the device (i.e. the viewer’s head), which provides an immensely immersive sensation. Some content (the more adventurous kind) may easily induce nausea (roller coaster rides, hang gliding flights, etc).
