VR Keynote: Rikard Steiber, President of HTC Viveport

Last April, HTC launched Viveport, a $6.99-per-month subscription service across 30+ countries for users of its Vive VR headset, in what it described as a bid to "democratize access to high-end VR experiences" and to create "a more than $100 million market opportunity for VR developers in the next two years." According to the company, the service was already seeing 100,000 unique users per week in the first month after the launch; and earlier this month, it announced that 75 more titles would now be available through the service, doubling the size of its library. In addition, it revealed that it is seeking to make the service available to users of other companies' VR headsets. 

In this keynote session, Rikard Steiber, the executive in charge of Viveport, will discuss how users are responding to Viveport to date, outline the company's roadmap for the service, and share his thoughts on how VR technology, content, usage and business models are likely to evolve over the coming months and years.
