The Netflix app had you seated in a cinema with a screen in front showing the programme, but it might have changed since.
Netflix you are actually sitting in a living room of a log cabin with a 75"ish TV in front of you

Hiya,
I wear glasses.
The spacer only helps make a bit more room for your frames inside the Go.
It works ok but I find that wearing glasses while watching stuff tends to get uncomfortable quick enough..
The weight of the headset is also a bit much for extended periods.. grand for an episode but pushing it for a movie...

That said.. watchin a movie via the app called SkyBox (nothing to do with Sky TV) is pretty cool.. It places you in a cinema and its uncannily convincing... great sense of space around you...Move your head around to see all the empty seats...And the screen is brilliant.. really feels like you are in the cinema.

There is also a YouTube app and an TV app.. they are pretty cool cos it looks like you are in a sittingroom watchin a big tv. Again.. very convincing.

BTW if you go look around on the Oculus site you can find a link to where you can buy replacement lenses for the Go that can be made with your glasses prescription. Think its about 90 bucks... out of budget for me for now.
But if you do go for those please do let us know how they are.

I beat Tomb Raider playing on my couch using Virtual Desktop on an IMAX screen with an Xbox wireless controller.

Was truly unbelievable the quality of the visuals, and much better than playing on my 15" laptop screen

FramesDirect are the official partner but they won't ship outside of the United States. WidmoVR have been recommended for us European folks. Currently waiting for an eye test with Specsavers as my current prescription is from 2008 (they did say my eyesight had stopped getting worse!).
