Fandango’s TV and movie digital storefront, Vudu, has been released as an application for Facebook’s Oculus Quest 1 and Quest 2 virtual reality headsets. According to Fandango, the app will serve as the official movie and TV store on Oculus.
Oculus VR users will be able to access more than 200,000 titles that they can rent or buy on the Vudu app. Moreover, they will get to experience watching them in a “dynamic, theater-like audio and video experience.”
A few notable titles include Ryan Reynolds-starrer ‘Free Guy,’ available to rent on Vudu starting Tuesday for $5.99, as well as ‘The Jungle Cruise,’ ‘The Addams Family 2,’ ‘F9: The Fast Saga’ and Marvel’s ‘Black Widow.’ Moreover, numerous 3D movies will also debut on the Oculus Quest 2 devices, including ‘The Boss Baby: Family Business,’ ‘Venom,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ ‘Ready Player One,’ ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and ‘Jurassic World.’
“Fandango’s mission is to usher fans to the most moving entertainment experiences, and we’re certainly able to deliver that promise with the new Vudu app on Oculus,” said Fandango Chief Commercial Officer Kevin Shepela. “We’re thrilled to be working with Oculus to help transport fans to new worlds in the most immersive formats available.”
NBCUnviersal’s Fandango had acquired Vudu from Walmart earlier in 2020. The electronic sell-through FandangoNow brand was then retired and subsequently merged with Vudu.
The service has over 60 million registered users. It is available on several platforms, including Samsung, LG, and Vizio Smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Comcast’s Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex, PlayStation, Xbox, and TiVo.
