Discovery Communications Collaborated With Google On An Innovative VR Series, Named “Discovery TRVLR”

If you ever want to see the whole world, then you are lucky that Google and Discovery have just announced a new Virtual Reality series, “Discovery TRVLR”.

Developed by Discovery VR and Google’s VR team, the series will be launched on YouTube, DiscoveryVR.com and the Discovery VR app for Android and iOS on 3th November.

Including 7 chapters, specified with 7 continents – North America, South America, Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia and Antarctica – and 38 episodes in total, this impressive VR series brings an unforgettable experience to its viewers who share the same passion for travelling.

There will be four different characters called the Guru, the Renegade, the Entertainer and the Explorer, in each continent.

While the episodes will enable its viewers to see the locals and observe different cultures, the users will also have a chance to watch around as they are really in the area or location.
