Netflix is now available for Google’s Daydream VR platform. The app supports HBM and Hulu too. 

Netflix didn’t make any splashy announcement as Daydream is joining a bushel of VR enabled platforms. It's worth pointing out that Gear VR is probably the most successful and Netflix for Daydream looks almost identical to the one on Gear VR.

The Daydream personal cinema group of apps includes YouTube, Hulu, Google Play Movies and TV, HBO now, Jaunt and now Netflix and we should point out that brining your phone so close to your eyes will make some pixels maybe too visible.

Daydream is currently only available on a very few phones that include Pixel and Pixel XL, Moto Z, Moto Z Droid and Mote Z Force Droid. That is not an exceptional list but we are sure that there will be more phones supporting the platform.

Daydream is currently available in only five markets, one of them being the  US. Verizon and Best Buy are selling it for $79 USD in the USA, Bell, Rogers, Telus, Best Buy are selling it for $99 (CAD) in Canada.

Customers in Australia can get Daydream from Telstra, JB Hi-Fi for $119 (AUD) while customers in the United Kingdom can purchase Daydream from EE and Carphone Warehouse for £69 (GBP).

The only non-English country to get D aydream at launch is German and Google is offering Daydream at Deutsche Telekom shows and online for €69 (EUR).
