MST3K, Bob Ross, and more VR events in Bigscreen this weekend
By Bigscreen Team • Issue #15 • View online
Hey everyone!
We’re adding a couple new channels and new events this weekend in Bigscreen.
Last week, we had some amazing events. Our SpaceX Falcon 9 launch event had 6,000 people RSVP. It was amazing to see so many people gather in Bigscreen to watch an awe-inspiring event together! Our livestream of Tomorrowland (one of the world’s largest EDM festivals) also did incredibly well! We loved seeing all the posts shared by the community.

✨ New Channels
You asked for it, and we added it into Bigscreen! Check out the new MST3K channel, available today on the Featured front page and in the Movies & TV category!
MST3K: Forced by evil scientists to watch bad B-rated movies, an imprisoned janitor and some robots make fun of the films to keep their sanity.
We also added a Helpdesk channel to watch videos of how to use Bigscreen, set up Remote Desktop, and more! You might find some friendly folks in there to help out from time to time. Helpdesk can be found in the Featured or Random categories.

Our friends from UploadVR shared their social experience in Bigscreen!
BigScreen empowered the narrative-driven title, Undertale, to bloom into a collaborative experience from which I and three former strangers bonded over the course of a few memorable nights. We laughed, we cried, and yes, we all reeled over that one jump scare near the end.
