No Titles Available for Subscription

I recently purchaced an HTC Vive and it came with a code for a content bundle. I logged into the VIVEPORT app (im on a PC) and I looked under subscriptions to see that the code had been accepted and that my "Current Subscription cycle" is from April 19, 2018-May 19,2018. However, where I select the 5 titles I want to download, there are 5 blank rectangles with the words "Title playing 0/5" above them. So, how can I get my 5 free games and why are there 0/5 titles available?

Re: No Titles Available for Subscription

Hi @Daoxis. It's displaying 0/5 because you haven't selected titles yet. When you scroll down the page, can you see titles there? Should look something like this:Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 5.26.33 PM.png

 

 

In this instance I've selected Island Time and Kartong - you click the check mark in the upper right. When you've selected however many titles you like (doesn't have to be all five at once, you can add them during the month) you click 'Confirm Selection' (top right).

 

Does that help?

Hi,

So I just tried the 14 day trial, but my wife told me when she bought the vive for me last Xmas, it was supposed to be a 1 month free trial.  What gives?

Re: No Titles Available for Subscription

Hi @mikeymyke

The trial offer period was altered in Feb/March to the current 14 day term (which was communicated via a transactional email). I'll look into if it's possible to address your specific instance, it's not very common for someone to hang onto a redemption code for this long so I'll have to circle back on this.

Re: No Titles Available for Subscription

For the 5 titles that I can install, are those games permanent or are they switched out every month? Are they full content or are there games known to have in game purchases/DLC even as a subscriber?

Re: No Titles Available for Subscription

Hi @Dyxanh; titles added to your subscription are reset every month, but you can add them again for the next month if you wish (or every month you remain subscribed). They're not permanent purchases, just accessible while you have an active subscription.

 

Unless noted on the product page, each title is a complete product. Some developers may add DLC in future, but generally that will be for free titles (that aren't part of subscription, because they're free).

 

In short: when you add a title to your Viveport Subscription it should be the full, complete game that you can play as much as you want for every month you remain an active subscriber.

Re: FAQ - Viveport Subscription

Hi @Shikalink, it's possible you created two accounts by accident. If you've ever logged in using a social account (Facebook, Google, Steam) as well as created an account using email, depending on whether you use the same email address for these accounts, they can easily get confused.

 

You can check your email (assuming it's the same address) and see if you have any email confirmations from HTC. If you have two, that could be why. Also you might try logging in with an email or resetting the password associated with it; if the account doesn't exist, you'll get told as much. Finally if none of that helps, send me a PM with your email address and we'll escalate to track it down.

Re: FAQ - Viveport Subscription

I got a 2 month subscription with my Vive Pro and grabbed five free downloads and then unsubscribed. I'd like to give a bit of feedback and not sure where the best place is for it, but I'll try here:

I really wanted since the beginning to like Viveport. Even though it sucks that HTC and Valve can't just give one unified experience. Destinations aka Steam Home should get a way bigger developer push, host events, be a thriving ecosystem, but it isn't so far. And somehow Viveport should be built into that. It's too fractured.

Also the majority of the content is amateurish. I thought a lot of money was being invested but it's falling way behind Oculus now. On Steam as well, but Viveport especially. I want a place to get non-game experiences however they should be better curated and rated. If I don't have many ratings for each then I tend to just avoid them. Another reason these companies shouldn't have fractured, if they want to help each other out.

Also generally the software is still too buggy. Maybe not as much as before but it should have been nearly flawless from the beginning if Viveport was to succeed. It most definitely wasn't. The environment looked cool but it's too limited and didn't work well. Too many annoyances to get into now.

I still think there's potential here but they need to step it up, big time. Just my two cents.

Re: FAQ - Viveport Subscription

Love your product and I couldn't help but try the subscription out for the first time with the awesome price point. Myself and the kids have tried three of our possible five choices for the month. One of the games is quite buggy for my son. Do you have the option of removing one of the options if the game is too buggy? The game is

As far as I know everything is up to date with my system and the VR. I can check anything that needs to be checked if you supply some ideas though. 

 

Thanks Shane
