SBS VR is a video-on-demand application which was launched on 1 April 2016 as SBS On Demand VR and showcases VR videos. The application's capabilities include 360º video and 3D through the use of Google Cardboard.

From release, the application had three videos on offer: a specially-made promo for 'Inside Heston's World' and two from the 2016 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (one of the parade highlights and the other from the side of SBS' Eurovision float). SBS plans to create more VR content in the future, including specialised content for the second season of 'Untold Australia'. The name was short lived, only being used for 7 months.

In October, the application updated to suit a new user interface and shorted the name to SBS VR.
