VR and OTT
When I think OTT I think NEtflix and when I think Netflix it is kind of hard to wrap my head around what they could offer in the VR realm.  On the other hand, I am starting to come around on VR.  I really felt like it was going to be another 3D TV, but unlike 3D TV it only seems to be growing in popularity and that is with little to no advertising promoting it. 

I don't watch a lot of TV, but I have seen one PSVR commercial and one demo in a target.

When the two augmented and virtual reality combined to makes billions of dollars for the virtual world we use online like work from home or social media websites so as time go on it will keep increasing and growing.

And not a moment too soon
Good thing virtual reality has arrived ... because actual reality is getting too damn depressing to deal with.

Re: VR and OTT
@afwriter - I still feel the use of VR for more traditional TV services is still unlcear. I think there are still concerns about headsets and bandwidth/visual quality. But there's probably potential in industry, for productive video. Thats seems to be a more clearly defined opportunity. I do think VR will take off in the consumer world, but I think that's a riskier bet.

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...

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).

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...?
