Go anywhere with Viveport Subscription





To mark Vive’s one-year anniversary, HTC has today launched the first-ever VR subscription service. With over 50 titles to choose from, subscribers will be able to experience five different Viveport apps a month from a constantly expanding collection. Launch day titles include favorites such as TheBlu, Everest VR, Mars Odyssey, Apollo 11 VR, Fantastic Contraption and many more.



Also in celebration of ‘Vive Day’, HTC is rewarding fans by giving away action sports title Arcade Saga. This is a 24-hour limited offer, so anyone interested in getting their free copy should visit Viveport.com between 12:01am PDT on April 5th and 12:01am PDT on April 6th. (You can also add Arcade Saga to your Viveport Subscription.)



Speaking of subscriptions, Vive Day is also the first day you can sign up for a free one-month trial of Viveport Subscription. Starting your subscription is easy; it’s as simple as choosing five apps, downloading and installing them, and ta-da! You could be exploring the surface of your favorite red planet in Mars Odyssey.


Viveport Subscription is a great and affordable way to explore and discover new VR experiences, providing you with unlimited access to five apps of your choosing, and you can make new choices every month to experience new apps.


Viveport is only $6.99 per month (or currency equivalent) should you decide to continue after the trial period, making it so much cheaper than a trip to a museum or a vacation in Hawaii… plus it can make saving for those fun getaways much easier. Naturally, if you register for Viveport Subscription and decide it’s not for you, you're able to cancel your subscription at any time. Ready to go? Register now at www.viveport.com.



From another perspective, if you’re a developer looking to boost your visibility in the VR market, making sure your Viveport app is part of Viveport Subscription is a great way to get your app in front of more people. It’s a simple one-click process to opt-in to Viveport Subscription, so visit developer.viveport.com for more information and to submit your app.


Viveport Subscription will add a whole new meaning to the phrase, “The world is your oyster.” I’ve been to three different parts of the world today in VR. Now tell me, where else can you find that kind of freedom?

Stick with Steam. VERY slow downloads. I've got another 35355 minutes until I get to try 'Storm VR'... Also, you have to select all titles at once, you can't choose one or two you know you want to try then select others a few days later. This meant I ended up having to make snap decisions rather than subscribing to stuff I might want to play more if I had the time to research each title.


Login process failed for me too, I ended up on a screen that just asked me to login and nothing else.


I've cancelled my subscription and wonder if I'll even get the titles downloaded by the time it expires.. It's downloading at 0.01MB/s, I did get 1MB/s earlier.. Steam is happy to max my line out at ~8MB/s.

I'm pleased with the Viveport Subscription service and, as my initial first free month draws to an end, I plan to continue with it.


The monthly fee for access to five titles is a lot less than the purchase cost of a single game.  In this early stage of VR software development, I prefer to sample a wide variety.  Most of the games and experiences available for VR so far aren't like the console AAA titles that you'd want to play for hundreds of hours over a period of months.  So a one month trial of five games has been perfect for me.


As a side-note, I appreciated getting an email notifying me that my free month was about to end, including an easy link to manage (cancel) the service, if I had wished to do so.  Usually when we sign up for free trials of various services, the offering company seems to hope we'll forget and end up paying for additional months by default.
