SBS takes viewers inside a pig’s life with updated VR app and new content

SBS has updated its virtual reality app, SBS VR.

SBS has updated the user experience, playback and navigation of its virtual reality (VR) app.

Alongside the launch are three new VR projects: Welcome to Garma with Ernie Dingo, A Pig’s Life with Matthew Evans, and Tomorrow’s Diwali.

“VR and 360 storytelling provides new opportunities to engage with audiences, immersing them in virtual worlds that drive an emotional connection through shared experience,” says John-Paul Martin, manager SBS Digital Creative Labs, the team that developed the app.

“Embracing this digital innovation, SBS VR transports viewers to the very heart of unique stories, encouraging a deeper understanding of our diverse world.”

Welcome to Garma builds on NITV’s coverage, presenting rare insight into the Indigenous Garma Festival in Arnhem Land.

A Pig’s Life explores the life of a pig in Australia’s meat trade, and Tomorrow’s Diwali is a real-time art animation driven by SBS Radio celebrating the significance of Diwali in Australia.

In a special partnership with the Antenna Documentary Film Festival, audiences can also access international VR film Invisible, a journey into the UK’s immigration detention system.
