The Orange VR1 will be rolled-out across several European markets over the next three months including France, Spain, Belgium, Poland and Luxembourg, with other countries to follow. The VR headset will be available to customers for approximately €49.99 with Orange VR 360 discovery application bundled togather. 

Customers in France will also be able to access more content over the coming months with Orange VR Experience which will feature premium VR videos, as well as the full OCS catalogue in a virtual environment.

With Orange’s extensive, high-speed network coverage, it is primed to deliver the crucial elements for the VR experience and to drive consumer adoption through VR solutions.
