Chinese users need new download line support
Although oculus products have not been officially sold in mainland China, tens of thousands of users have chosen oculus. Because of GFW, tens of thousands of users are unable to activate or update the device, and many new users are forced to give up using oculus excellent VR devices for this reason. Therefore, we hope to get oculus' help.
There are two ways to alleviate the problem:
1、 Set up CDN nodes or servers in Asia or China
Facebook server IP has been completely blocked by GFW; Amazon's servers in the U.S. are not ideal in China. (slow download speed) hope to set up new CDN nodes or servers in Asia or China.
2、 Add offline installation package and update package
At present, only VPN can be used to download and update products in China, but due to the impact of GFW, it usually takes 3-48 hours to complete. If there is an offline installation package, this situation will be improved. However, services such as oculus store are still affected by GFW and cannot be used normally.
If the problem can be solved, more users will be willing to use oculus VR products.

The biggest problem for oculus users in china,Or for someone that has money but no access to the server.
With the problem solved,oculus can easily take chinese's money from both games and divices.As there are tens of thousands of players want to play VR games,while most of them have given up this idea beacuse of the unbelieveable price of the HTC ones.The original vive has nothing better than rifts but Chinese support.
I can imagine tons of CNY flying over the Pacific to the facebook's office,and I wish this is not just a dream.
