HTC Announces Viveport Subscription Service for VR Apps and Games

Posted by at 10:53 am on April 3, 2017

The HTC Vive virtual reality headset marks its first year anniversary this week, on April 5, and is set to mark the occasion by launching the “first-ever subscription model for a VR app store”—named Viveport Subscription.

Plus customers can redeem a free copy of Vive Studios’ VR action game Arcade Saga, and new customers will receive $100 off Vive on April 5th.

Billed as “a new way to navigate the burgeoning VR app marketplace”, Viveport will cost users $6.99 /£6.99 per month, and will run a one month free trial for newbies. For that, you’ll get unlimited access to your apps of choice—Viveport Subscription will launch with over 50 apps—with the ability to rotate out selections each month and try apps prior to purchase.

Content creators opt-in to the service or can continue to sell their titles in a standalone capacity.

“We’re happy to let VR fans know that the same way they discover and consume content through popular subscription services for music, films, TV and games is coming to virtual reality,” said Steiber. “For developers, this is yet another opportunity for them to reach broader audiences — we want to give VR developers as many ways as possible to monetize and feature their content, and this is yet another channel for them to reach new customers on Viveport.”

 

Furthering the festivities, HTC is also giving away a free copy of Vive Studios’ VR action game Arcade Saga and is also offering new customers $100/£100 off Vive headsets on April 5. More information on the Viveport Subscription service can be found on the Vive Blog.
