PlayStation VR Finally Has YouTube App
Sony's PlayStation VR apparently has a new YouTube PlayStation 4 Application for the new 1.09 update. Several reports online say that a couple of Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter users have already tested the new app. However, it looks like the rest are still to receive the latest update. The US and UK users are still caught with version 1.08. To manually see if you can download 1.09, PlayStation Network users simply have to run "Check for Update". Go to the TV and Video section of the dashboard the press the "Options" button on the DualShock 4 controller when the cursor is hovering the YouTube app icon.
With Oculus Rift, Google Daydream, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR, Virtual reality undoubtedly became a great force in 2016. YouTube is lucky to be at the center for great VR video content from close shark encounters from Discovery to 360-degree cooking battles.
Before the update, a nonexistent YouTube app meant users typically had to download videos then use a flash drive to watch the content. Others access it through a shared network. With the 1.09 update, users can now watch 360-degree videos without the added fuss as you can directly view YouTube videos from the Sony headset itself. The PlayStation VR does have video apps but they can't compare to YouTube's content quantity.
Once the YouTube app is launched, users then choose to either run the Normal or the PlayStation VR version of the application before immersing in YouTube's massive flat screen and 360-degree video collection. Exciting as all of this seems, Sony and YouTube have yet to announce a global launch date for the PlayStation 4 YouTube app 1.09 update. If you still haven't owned a VR headset, you get yourself a PlayStation VR priced $399 as a holiday gift. It sounds expensive but it appears to be cheaper than HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

Netflix is Raising Prices, Here’s How it Now Compares to Other Streaming Services
Once a brand gains the trust and loyalty of its market, it is only logical that it attempts to flex its dominant muscle. Such is the tale that fits the recent price hike coming from the stable of Netflix. Having baited consumers into believing that streaming, and not cable subscription, is the right way to go, Netflix has now decided to drop its own form of a bombshell on consumers in the form of price increment. The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
