Re: VR and OTT
@mhh I'm more interested in augmented reality myself. VR is a novelty technology (at least for now).

Re: VR and OTT
@mhhf1ve - well there goes my argument - thanks for pointing that out.  You are right.  But I believe the value Facebook will derive will have to do with the social media network ultimately - more than the pure value of the VR itself.  It will be intersting to see what other companies do, or don't do, with VR.

Well, one could argue that Facebook doesn't really have a "real contribution to real life" either... and Facebook owns Oculus... but if any company is going to figure out a way to profit from this pointlessness...

@mhhf1ve - I am with you on the true value.  It is a great novelty, but not sure what the real contribution is to real life?

It's like Disneyland - great place to visit but you would not want to live there.

Same here. I'm not sure what the early adopters of VR are doing. I think I'll wait to see what Magic Leap will unveil before I get too excited. Mixed reality sounds a bit more interesting....

Hahaha. Are you concerned about a certain orange-faced future? (Not that there isn't something wrong with that..)

VR might be a better escape than Canada...?

Re: VR and OTT
Netflix has been a leader in OTT video, and considering the challenges it faces with just 4K video and HD/SD video (net neutrality issues and the like), it seems like it would be a real stretch for it to venture into OTT VR content with even more stringent traffic requirements for customer satisfaction. Netflix deals with quite a bit of customer experience complaints already, so I can't imagine it wants to try to step into a whole new realm (without a path to profitability).

Re: VR and OTT
@af I'm no fan of VR these days. I'm waiting to see what comes of the technology. The current predictions are really interesting, but I have yet to see a compelling use case for myself...
