IMPORTANT INFORMATION: CHANGES TO SERVICE
Here at Sky, we’re always looking ahead. We create, we innovate and we invest in what’s new and what’s next. And we do all this to always get you closer to the entertainment you love.
So, what’s next?
Next is even better experiences. More interactive. More dynamic. Experiences that are at their best when you access our Sky VR app on Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear and from May, Oculus Go.
We’re sorry, but our app will no longer be supported on Google Cardboard/Magic Window or Google Daydream from 07 June. Thank you for being with us. We hope to find new ways to entertain you again in the future.

Sky VR goes beyond watching – it’s an exciting and interactive way to experience brilliant Sky content and all it needs, is you.

• A great range of Sky Original Production scripted content, from the opportunity to delve behind the scenes of Britannia, to a fully narrative story for the smash-hit Italian drama Gomorrah, which was especially written for VR.
