26 January 2024
The streaming service won't gain many new subscribers that way. But Netflix is keeping an eye on things and is open to working with Apple.

YUKI93, 28 Jan 2024R1 is for all the head tracking stuff. It still has M2 SoC ... moreI think it's better to make software from the ground up for something like the Vision Pro, especially because of the way we interact with the device and UI (gestures, voice, eyes) is totally different from other platforms.

It still has M2 SoC alongside it, though I still wonder why Apple don't just use macOS as the base for visionOS, in the same that way iPadOS is based on iOS but reworked for tablets.

                PorkHotdog, 27 Jan 2024Lol what? A 65" tv is like $600 rnCheck the prices of OLED TVs.

                  PorkHotdog, 27 Jan 2024Lol what? A 65" tv is like $600 rnBrand dependable.
                  Sony 65 incher is like 3500-5000 even more.
                  Something from Samsung can be two grands easily brand new model.
                  Old one from lets say 2016 or older can cost like 500.
                  TCL or Xiaomi TV can be under 500.

                  100 inch Samsung QE98QN990C is easily 40k euros for TV.
                  100 inch LG OLED97G2 is easily 30-32K euros
                  75 inch Sony XR-75Z9K is easily 8k or Sony Bravia XR-98X90L which is also 100 incher TV is over 7k in most shops.
                  And just for example Loewe Iconic i65 Smart OLED TV - graphite grey is 8 grand easily.
                  This Loewe brand dont sell cheap at all. They are like ultra premium among all others.

                  So yes 65 inch TV can cost even 300 if i buy a 10-15 years old model with early flat screens ever made.

                  Apple TV at 65 inch wouldnt be less than k-10k for example.

                      An oculus quest is a tenth of the price and does the same thing as the apple headset. Plus it lets you play games and connect to your PC and play full PC games on steam

                        k0vasz, 26 Jan 2024maybe it's just me, but I thought this thing is runnin... moreiPadOS and tvOS are ports of iOS, redesigned and optimized for the product. MacOS is an entirely different thing and so is visionOS. I thought it ran MacOS myself and the R1 chip made it all happen in real time.

                            There's even accessories for each glasses though they serve completely different function between one another: https://youtu.be/Dpn6C_Gi7aM

                              I mean that is kind of obvious, I said that as soon as Netflix annouced they would not be supporting it yet.
                              Financially it makes no sense until the product is in more peoples hands, pre orders are only 170k, which was around what was expected, and the forecast is for 400k units this year, at $4k a pop that may be a tough sell to get to a million for example, but when it is released worldwide and a cheaper or non pro version arrives then it may help sales.

                                  Using VR witha laughable battery life as a TV.
                                  mEh funny.

                                    Like anyone would use a 3500 eur virtual reality with 2 hours of battery life as an TV instread of a regular TV lets say 65-80 inch or so whuich would cost also 3500eur.

                                      Smart move, vr headsets are not considered as something can be used too much, different from phone or tv, you cain watch netflix more than 2 or 3 hours without feeling fatigue

                                        I am totally with ceo guy.
                                        Most probably less than 1 million users in a year and how many of them are Netfix users? Who knows?
                                        So is it really worth it? They won't get any additional payment from this app.
