Facebook’s Oculus VR virtual-reality unit now has two more ways to Hulu and chill.

Hulu and Oculus announced that Gear VR users can now view Hulu content with other users in Rooms, including all premium 360-degree videos on Hulu and, for subscribers, its entire 2-D library.

The two companies also announced that the Hulu application for Oculus Rift will support avatars and the Oculus Touch controller, enabling users to bring their avatars into the Hulu experience and navigate via Touch.
