HTC Vive didn’t mess about when it came to CES 2019 in January. Not content with announcing two virtual reality (VR) headsets, HTC Vive Cosmos and HTC Vive Pro Eye, the company also revealed a new subscription service, Viveport Infinity. Today, in preparation for the service going live next month, users will be able to get a month for free by filling out a short survey.
By the looks of it, this isn’t a competition. All you need to do is fill out the short survey and share your favourite Viveport experiences and what’s on your current wishlist for future features. In doing so you’ll get 30 days of free Viveport Infinity usage, with codes sent via email on 20th March, ahead of the official launch on 2nd April.
And not to annoy those who already pay for a subscription HTC Vive states: “We’re also excited to announce that existing Viveport Subscription members with active pre-paid memberships will be able to experience the upgraded, unlimited access to their library at no extra cost!”
As with any deal do always be aware of the fine print. This offer is only available until 17th March and the code must be redeemed by 15th April 2019. You’ll also need a credit card to complete the offer: “If you cancel the subscription during the 1 month trial period you will not be charged, and you will lose access to Viveport Infinity content that you accessed during the trial period once the trial ends. Unless you cancel the subscription during the trial period you will automatically be charged a monthly subscription fee a month after the end of the trial period, and each month thereafter until you cancel your subscription. If you redeem the code before April 2, 2019, you will be charged a monthly subscription fee of $8.99 per month through the end of 2019 or until you cancel your subscription.”
Viveport Infinity is being billed as the ultimate way to enjoy videogames and apps on Viveport. Unlike the standard subscriptions which only allow access to five videogames per month, there’s no limitation with Viveport Infinity. Customers will have access to a library of more than 600 games and apps, compatible with both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
The annual Vive Day celebrations usually take place on 5th April. As further offers are revealed VRFocus will keep you updated.
