Hulu VR viewing comes to your Oculus Rift

There's even a themed viewer if you watch '12 Monkeys.'

You no longer have to don a Gear VR headset to watch Hulu in virtual reality. The streaming service has introduced an Oculus Rift app that brings the immersive experience to your PC. The Rift version not only takes advantage of the extra power of a computer (it's "polished, sharper and highly responsive"), but introduces themed viewing rooms for shows. When you watch 12 Monkeys, it'll plunk you in the sci-fi series' Temporal Facility -- a bit gimmicky, to be sure, but less illusion-breaking than a virtual living room. Here's hoping that other shows get a similar treatment, and that HTC Vive owners get their turn.
