LG and Nvidia Team up to Deliver Cloud PC Gaming to TVs

Beta begins rolling out this week

Google’s on-demand gaming service, Stadia, may not be lighting up the charts, but cloud gaming is coming, one way or another, and now GPU giant Nvidia has made another big move.

The company has teamed up with television manufacturer LG to release a beta version of GeForce Now, a cloud game-streaming service, to some modern televisions, according to a press release by LG.

Nvidia's GeForce Now is already available on PCs, Macs, smartphones, and tablets, but this partnership with LG will deliver the service to a spate of televisions, including "select 2021 LG 4K OLED, QNED Mini LED, and NanoCell TV models."

The service also allows players to start a game on their LG television and move to any other device without losing their place. 

The app is rolling out this week to the aforementioned LG models and can be downloaded via the LG Content Store. Over 35 free games are available, including Rocket League and Destiny 2, and you can purchase many other games. You won't need any additional hardware to play, but you will need a compatible controller. 

"LG OLED's self-lit pixels ensure the most vibrant colors and deepest blacks to make in-game environments and characters more realistic than ever," the company wrote. "LG TVs also deliver ultra-fast 1 millisecond response time and super-low input lag for smoother visuals, better control, and a key advantage over the competition."

As for additional specs, games max out at 60fps and 1080p resolution, though Nvidia says it plans to constantly improve the app by releasing updates in partnership with LG through 2022.
