Intro: The Discovery VR app has always been about driving curiosity – exploring new places, characters and ideas. With VR videos, Discovery embraces a new opportunity to tell these amazing stories immersing you in experiences like never before. We’re excited about what virtual reality will show us, and we’ll be adding new content regularly.





Verdict (Equipment Used: Samsung S7, Baofeng Mojing S1, Samsung Bluetooth Controller): Let’s face it. Anything that the Discovery channel are going to make in 360 video style is going to look good and that is exactly what this app is full of. Choose from Gold Rush, Adventure, Wildlife, Survivorman and even space-themed videos, then pop it into a mobile VR headset and away you go?

It this sort of video style the future? Only time will tell, but it does have to be said that it makes certain things like the underwater and wildlife videos seem very immersive. Pop on a pair of headphones and you might just as well be there while they film it. But I also found that some videos we just a little pointless as 360 videos. It seems maybe only certain situations and genres require it.

Our Rating 7/10: Some great 360 videos, but also a load of rubbish ones.
