Want to experience the exciting world of Virtual Reality, but don’t have a spare couple hundred bucks to drop on a new VR kit? Well HTC is giving its buyers in the United Kingdom another option to purchase its Vive, with 24 month financing at £34.84 per month, 9.9% APR. However going this route increases the cost from £759 to £836.19. This pricing however does not include shipping.
Of course financing the Vive is essentially applying for a loan, so interested buyers will have to go through an application process, similar to applying for a new credit card. The details you provide are checked against public registers, such as credit-rating agencies. To increase the chances of acceptance, ideally, you will have a good credit history.
Of course HTC doesn’t let you down with such an expensive cost, and throws in some free content, Richie’s Plank Experience and Everest VR. Buyers also get one month’s free access to HTC’s Viveport subscription, where they can pick five monthly selections from HTC’s curated collection of VR titles.
