Bigscreen To Host Stargate Origins Screenings In VR This Week

Bigscreen To Host Stargate Origins Screenings In VR This Week


Following the success of its Top Gun-focused screening late last year, Bigscreen is back with another major piece of entertainment, but this time it’s in the form of a TV show. Starting tomorrow March 8th at 3PM PT and running every half hour, Bigscreen will host screenings of Stargate Origins episodes, behind-the-scenes content, and trailers.

The screenings will conclude at 12AM PT Sunday, March 11th.

Stargate Origins is a new TV series based on the 1994 film, Stargate, and was first announced at last year’s San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) as a prequel series for MGM’s Stargate Command subscription service. The first three episodes premiered last month and will likely be the focus of this screening.

Bigscreen is a VR app that lets users gather together to watch movies and videos (such as in this case) and also stream their entire desktop PCs to shared VR environments for virtual co-working spaces, virtual LAN parties, and more.

The last time Bigscreen had a major screening in VR with Top Gun, most people stayed around to watch at least a full hour of the movie, which is a pretty long time for continuous VR usage. Stargate Origins episodes are much shorter than a feature length film, so you can break up your veiewing across the entire weekend if you want.

In order to watch the show all you’ve got to do is show up — no purchase required. The streams will be available to viewers in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand. If you’re interested, you can get Bigscreen on Steam, Oculus Home, or the Microsoft Store.
