The reason certainly isn't hype, a new FierceCable special report says -- companies like Facebook are investing billions of dollars in VR.

"I'm a converted skeptic -- there's just too many big companies involved in it now spending real money for it to be hype," said Parks Associates Senior Analyst Brett Sappington.
