One of the biggest problems with Gear VR at launch is the general lack of stuff to do. Samsung is now trying to fix that content conundrum with Milk VR, a free video streaming service designed specifically with the company's latest face wearable in mind.
Launching as a technical preview, Milk VR aspires to be a YouTube of VR by serving up 1-10 minute videos in full 360-degrees, and CNET says that Samsung hopes to assuage fears of early adopters and would-be adopters that the headset can't really do that much. Right now the selection is a limited number of videos in the genres "music, sports, action, and lifestyle," but Samsung hopes to trickle in more content in the future.

Samsung is making a big investment in VR, even announcing a 360-degree video camera tailor-made for capturing VR. For £150 (and a Note 4), the Gear VR is a good entry point for the VR-curious, but with more content, it could be a great one. [CNET via TechCrunch]
