Discovery Communications and Google are teaming on the launch of Discovery TRVLR, an immersive, ambitious 38-episode virtual reality travel series that explores cultures across the globe through a “360-degree storytelling experience.”
The project from the Discovery VR and Google’s VR teams launches November 3 exclusively on YouTube, DiscoveryVR.com and on the Discovery VR app. The series can be experienced in virtual reality with the Google Daydream View headset as well as with Cardboard. The series can also be viewed through the web, Android and iOS phones.
“Discovery’s viewers look to us for innovation and expect to be taken places that satisfy their desire for exploration and adventure,” said Rebecca Howard, SVP Emerging Platforms and Partnerships at Discovery VR. “Like Discovery, Google’s VR team shares a passion for VR storytelling, and we are thrilled to partner with them on Discovery TRVLR, our most ambitious endeavor to date.”
