    Samsung MILK VR Delivers Virtual Reality Content
    Samsung continues to innovate in the mobile space.
    While next-generation devices will follow in the footsteps of the Galaxy Note Edge, the Gear S and the Gear VR, content offerings will continue to expand through Samsung MILK. Until now a streaming music service with millions of active users worldwide, Samsung MILK is not only adding its video discovery service, MILK Video, but will also expand to Smart TVs, and – for the music part – to the Web as well.

    Fans of the Samsung Gear VR – the virtual reality headset powered by the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – will also be able to tap into the Milk experience, with a daily stream of immersive 360-degree videos and VR channels for music, sports, action and lifestyle.

    The service will offer both “Instant Play” (progressive streaming) and “Best Quality” (download) options in the highest quality available (4K x 2K). Through daily content updates and curating of new videos, Gear VR users will always have fresh, immersive videos to explore.

    In a first of its kind announcement, Samsung is partnering with Skybound Entertainment, producers of The Walking Dead, to create in 2015 the first mystery suspense thriller entirely produced for VR.

    Additionally, through content partnerships, including those with the National Basketball Association (NBA), Skybound Entertainment, RedBull, Mountain Dew, Acura, Artists Den, Refinery 29 and Boiler Room, Samsung will continue to bring dynamic virtual reality content to consumers.
