Netflix is an American media services provider headquartered in Los Gatos, California. It was founded on August 29th 1997 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph in Scotts Valley, California. As of 2019, it has 139 million paid subscriptions worldwide.
Netflix is extremely popular around the world for being one of the first streaming services to offer both movies and television shows. It rose to prominence with the release of its first original show, House of Cards, a few years later.
The average rating on Netflix is currently 4.01 stars out of 5.
The Oculus Quest brings in many new possibilities for apps in 2019 to provide quality content in an untethered, easy to use the system. On the Quest, Netflix is one of those apps that offers a lot of promise and delivers well. It was easy to set up and start using right away without any hassle.
The controls are intuitive and responsive rather than sluggish with touchpad navigation which is often cited as being inferior to joystick control schemes. There are plenty of options in the interface for finding what to watch, whether you are looking for movies or shows.
The library is vast and full of quality content. Since the Quest is designed with portability in mind, this allows you to catch up on your favorite show while stuck on a layover or the like. Finally, the picture quality is great and there was no noticeable drag on the framerate during playback.
Overall Netflix on the Oculus Quest is a great experience and one we wholeheartedly recommend. If you have the headset, be sure to grab this app while it’s available in the Store.
