Many media companies are banking on virtual reality as the future of entertainment, which is why Plex VR is looking to offer viewers a holistic experience. The app, which was recently announced by the eponymous content hosting platform, presents different types of virtual reality content within different scenes, essentially recreating the home viewing experience in a virtual reality environment.

Plex VR is set to offer several different scenes to choose from, with venues that range from sleek urban penthouse apartments to drive-in movie theaters. These scenes are designed to be social — up to four people can occupy a given scene together. The head positions of other users are updated in real time as well, so users can always see where the others are looking and what's interesting them most in the virtual space.
