Economist to make own VR films

360-degree VR films will be viewable on Playstation VR, Oculus Rift, and Apple TV.


The Economist has signed a deal with Littlstar, allowing VR films to be viewed on a number of different headsets.

Currently, VR films from the Economist are only available on VR apps for Andoid and iPhones, or via YouTube and Facebook.

Tom Standage, deputy editor at the Economist, said: “Over the past year we have brought The Economist’s mind-stretching journalism to this new and exciting storytelling medium.


“We are delighted that our VR pieces have been well received, and have won several awards. By working with Littlstar and other partners we can maximise the reach and awareness of our VR content.”
