VIVEPORT Turns 3! | A VIVEPORT History


Recommended Posts

Break out the cake and party favors, VIVEPORT turns three today! To celebrate, we’re offering a discount on 12-month Infinity memberships! Starting today through September 30th you can purchase an annual plan for only $7.99 a month. But that’s not all! We’ve also added the full version of Sariento VR to the Infinity library for a limited time.

As we celebrate our anniversary we wanted to take a quick look back at the evolution of Viveport. Just like the VR industry, we’ve come a long way since our 2016 launch.

Viveport first burst into the scene in 2016 as the app store for virtual reality where VIVE owners could discover lifestyle VR experiences. From art to creativity tools, travel, music, education, design and more, Viveport was the place to explore all that VR had to offer outside of gaming. But a lot has changed since launch as our service has progressed to meet the evolving needs and realities of the VR enthusiast.

We quickly realized that VR owners needed help navigating the burgeoning market for VR apps while developers were looking for another channel to monetize their content. To solve both of these problems we launched Viveport Subscription, the first VR subscription service, in early 2017. For one monthly price, subscribers chose five titles a month from our Subscription library. This new model for VR gave VIVE owners a chance to try titles before purchasing while offering developers an additional avenue for revenue.

In 2018 we greatly increased our library and potential user base as we added games to the service and support for Oculus Rift owners. Not just limited to VIVE headsets or non-gaming applications, Viveport doubled the content library for customers and doubled the potential audience for developers in its second year. In addition, we made massive upgrades to the service, improving usability and stability for our users. Improving our service is always ongoing as we strive to create the best user experience for Viveport customers.


While only in September 2019 has been our biggest year yet! We’ve made our subscription service unlimited with Viveport Infinity while continuing our mission to become a hardware-agnostic platform. Launched in April, a Viveport Infinity membership grants unrestricted access to the hundreds of apps, games, and videos in our Infinity library.

With Infinity, VR owners have the ability to play their favorite titles and discover new ones all at an affordable price. In addition, we’ve added support for Oculus Rift S, Valve Index, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets this year, assuring affordable access for the majority of VR enthusiasts.

Throughout the years, we’ve made it our mission to make VR more accessible to consumers while supporting the VR developer community. Thank you for being on this journey with us and making our Viveport community so awesome.


Wondering if you should check out Viveport Infinity for yourself? Here are what some members of our community are saying about the service:

“I am an Oculus Rift user and I feel right at home on Viveport. Viveport has a surprisingly wide selection of Oculus games and great a support team to boot.”

“The ability to checkout a lot of games before purchasing and then being able to jump right into purchasing is great too. The service is definitely one of a kind and I am excited to see new features and titles added as time goes on.”

– Edward Y.
