How to watch the Oculus special event, live!

Oculus is throwing a special event today to discuss the future of the Rift, gaming, virtual reality and "more." It's all going down in San Francisco, but the good news is that interested parties can check out the event in full, live, online as it unfolds.

Here's the where and the when.

The event can be watched in two different places. First of those is on Oculus' own website, the second is on So, if you're on your Xbox One fire up the Twitch app and look for the Oculus channel. Links for both are below.

So, how about when? The event kicks off at 10 a.m. local time in San Francisco, and these corresponding times in various other parts of the world:

  • 1.00 p.m. ET
  • 5.00 p.m. GMT
  • 6.00 p.m. BST
  • 10.30 p.m. IST
  • 3.00 a.m. AEST

Anywhere else, we recommend timeanddate for all your timezone needs.

As for the event, we're not really sure what we'll see. Oculus Rift has slowly been progressing and there are some obvious gaming use cases for such a headset. It's still a developer kit as of right now and early talk suggests today we'll hear about the first consumer edition. Many would have expected an event like this to tag on to E3 next week in LA, but whatever Oculus has for us they're taking a bold step and getting in early.
