Oculus Rift VOD discontinued: VR movie store shutting down • Variety
Janko Roettgers:
<p>Facebook’s VR subsidiary Oculus is shutting down its VOD [video on demand] efforts on is Oculus Rift headset this week, and is reimbursing anyone who has bought titles in the past. Oculus told Rift users in an email about the changes Monday, and confirmed the move in a comment sent to Variety.

“Over the years, we’ve seen how people use VR for everything from gaming to movies, and it’s become clear that while people love to stream immersive media on other devices, Rift is used primarily for gaming,” Oculus said in its email to customers.  “These insights inform how we support new and existing features and apps across the platform.”

The movie store on Rift is shutting down Monday. Consumers who have purchased or rented movies in the past will continue to have access to them until November 20. “After this date, you will no longer be able to access any purchased or rented movies through Oculus Video, but you can continue to watch video and streams from other sources, such as Facebook 360,” the company said in its email.</p>

Seems like the window of broader opportunity is closing again for VR; it probably won't open again for another 10 years or so. It's going to be a niche gaming device.
