The cable programmer has signed an exclusive brand sponsor for “Discovery TRVLR,” to be announced at a later date, according to a rep. Shooting for in the series has spanned about three months and is still ongoing, with the earthquake in Mexico City last month disrupting production of the final episodes.
Discovery pacted with Google’s VR group to distribute the docu-series. It will be free to watch exclusively on YouTube, DiscoveryVR.com and on the Discovery VR app — no cable subscription required.
“Discovery TRVLR” can be experienced in VR with the Google Daydream View headset as well as with Google Cardboard, and in non-VR format on the web, Android and iOS phones.
