Excerpts from an article by Janko Roettgers in Variety

HTC is officially launching its Viveport subscription service for virtual reality games and experiences this week. Starting Tuesday, consumers who subscribe to the new service will be able to download up to five titles every month for a flat fee of $6.99.

Some of the VR titles available at launch through the service include “theBlu,” “Everest VR,” “Mars Odyssey” and more. Altogether, the service will launch with more than 50 games and experiences. Owners of HTC’s Vive VR headset will be able to try the service for free for one month.

The new Viveport subscription isn’t exactly Netflix-style unlimited, though: Consumers can download up to five titles and keep them as long as they’re subscribed to the service, or trade them out for up to five new titles every month.
