BBC Earth partners with Oculus

January 6, 2017

BBC Earth, the natural history producer, has announced a new partnership with Oculus to launch three virtual reality experiences, inviting users to step into the lives of distinct animals.

Users will be immersed into the daily adventures of a Caracal Cat, an Oogpister Beetle and Black Bears. All three virtual reality experiences will be released separately on Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR platforms later this month and will be available free to download for the first three months.

Julia Kenyon, Global Brands Director for BBC Worldwide said, “We are delighted to be partnering with Oculus to give audiences a completely different insight into the natural world. By allowing users to immerse themselves in the environments of these three animals, we are hoping to bring people rich and unforgettable adventures different from any traditional natural history series.”
