How do I get started with the Next World Enterprises Platform and content?
The Next World Enterprises suite of Off the Shelf, bespoke, custom and Induction assets require an Oculus Go/Quest headset or other hardware to experience. You are required to purchase the headset(s) yourself as we cannot resell these devices to you or your business. If your Oculus devices are intended for use by multiple different people, we advise also purchasing alternative face shields for hygiene purposes.
You are also required to create an Oculus Account with the devices. One account can be signed into all devices you have that you wish to use Next World content on.
Next World Enterprises Off-the-Shelf content is downloaded from the Oculus Store from it’s Alpha/Beta channels, which are channels that require permission to access. To gain access to these channels for your account, you must purchase one of our subscription services and continue to pay fees over the next 3 years to maintain access. Alternatively, the full amount that will be paid over the 3 years can be paid in full upfront. Any remaining payment can also be paid in full at any time.
Induction content is provided under a separate subscription service due to it’s more personalised nature.
Can I share my account with someone else?
You are the owner of your Oculus Account and Next World Enterprises owns the content we produce. You must not log the account into Oculus Go headsets that have not been purchased by you or your company and install any Next World content. You must also not exceed the number of headsets that your subscription permits. If you do so you will immediately be in breach of these Terms.

You retain the right to use any Next World Content installed onto your Oculus headsets for the subscription period that is paid for. If the content is later uninstalled from the device, you do not have the right to reinstall it, as you will no longer have access to the Alpha/Beta channel. If your subscription was paid in full upfront, you will receive updates for the 3 years you have paid for, updates will cease after that point.
