When I asked Alex Kipman, the guy behind the Mixed Reality on Windows 10, about one single page which lists all the VR apps for Windows 10, he pointed me here, and what turned out to be even more interesting is the listing of VR Ready Hulu App, and when I dug in further, looks like there is an official announcement as well.
Hulu is a popular online video streaming service for TV shows, Movies and more. Shows from National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and Live Nation are available to them, and if you have missed past seasons of shows like South Park, Seinfeld, and The Golden Girls, you can just find it there.
The timing for Hulu to rollout their VR version is bang-on. Windows 10 Fall Creators update is already rolling out, and MR headsets are on sale already, so if you want to watch it on VR, its time you grab it.The app is among the first third-party media and entertainment apps to debut with the Microsoft Mixed Reality Platform and is available for free starting today.
Hulu and Microsoft have partnered together to debut two never-before-seen premium VR project The Driver and A Curious Mind. These two immersive VR experiences are available exclusively to Microsoft Mixed Reality headset users for the next 30 days. After 30 days, The Driver and A Curious Mind will be available able across all Hulu VR-supported platforms, including Gear VR, PSVR, Daydream and Rift.
In The Driver, you’ll jump in the front seat with NASCAR driver, Jeffrey Earnhardt, and experience the thrill of being on the racetrack while driving over 150 miles per hour. The piece was developed specially to simulate g-force, giving you an authentic, true-to-life NASCAR experience.

PS: The VR app is different from the regular app.
