    It was during the Facebook's F8 developer conference when the Oculus TV app was originally announced. The Oculus TV is a dedicated app for watching videos on a flatscreen which is said to equal to that of a huge 180-inch TV in real life. The Oculus TV app will offer the users a completely new experience for watching TV shows, movies and even streaming videos on the Oculus Go headset.

    The recently announced app comes bundled with on-demand and live content categorized in different channels which can be accessed like a real TV. Oculus has also teamed up with a number of content providers such as Netflix, Showtime, Hulu and more. The Oculus TV app is also supported by a number of third-party applications such as PlutoTV, Red Bull TV, and Facebook Video, however, most of the content is exclusive for the US citizens. Oculus has also said that it is working to add more networks in its platform which will also include ESPN.
