Samsung & Red Bull Announce Partnership to Create 360VR Content – Exclusive to Gear VR

Repeat after me, dear 360VR Community: Content is King. Samsung has made official a partnership with Red Bull to create more 360° video content for its Samsung Gear VR platform.

The 360° Video content will be developed via Red Bull’s Rulebreakers promotional campaign, aiming to “inspire people to cross their limits and show what they’re really capable of”.

Content from the Red Bull events below should be available in 360° shortly, as Samsung will be present to capture the action:
– World breakdance championship
– BC ONE World Final
– Big Air Kitesurf Contest
– Red Bull Megaloop Challenge in Zandvoort

Samsung’s Gear VR has been getting a bit of a push this year, with Samsung promoting the 360° content consumption aspect of the headset. Earlier this year, Samsung launched the VR Live Pass, which made major live events – UFC 212, X Games Minneapolis and a ColdPlay concert – available to watch in 360° for Gear VR owners, thanks to partnership deals with UFC, the X-Games & Live Nation.

Samsung will soon reveal exactly what content is coming, so make sure to keep following the Samsung VR Live Pass.
