HTC Vive are set to launch the world’s first subscription-model service for VR apps.
The new service will give Vive owners a single place to find the ever-growing number of VR apps and discover new releases. The service will be available for a monthly fee.
The launch will feature a one month free trial for all new users.
‘A natural evolution’
“The marketplace for Vive apps has grown at a tremendous pace with more than 1,600 titles now available across different app stores and over 30 new apps launching daily,” Viveport president Rikard Steiber said.
“The rapid growth of the app market is a win for VR overall yet it can present discoverability challenges that affect both customers and content creators.
“Introducing a subscription model to VR is a natural evolution of where this market is going, and as film, music and TV have proven its becoming the preferred way customers want to explore and experience entertainment content.”
Viveport Subscription will be launched on 5 April.
