Little by little, cloud gaming services are finding their way into our televisions. At CES 2021, LG announced the arrival of Stadia and GeForce Now in its products. It is now Samsung’s turn to succumb to the trend. In a post, the Korean firm teases what the year 2022 has in store for its TVs. Among the novelties, we therefore find the cloud gaming services signed Google and Nvidia.

These can be found within a Gaming Hub, which Samsung describes as a true launcher in its own right. “Samsung’s Gaming Hub will empower gamers to quickly discover and launch the games they love through streaming services.”, explains the manufacturer. “Gamers will have access to a growing game library thanks to Samsung’s partnerships with industry leaders – NVIDIA GeForce Now, Stadia and Utomik – and this is just the beginning.”.

Samsung TVs to offer Stadia and GeForce Now in 2022

This is therefore a real selling point for Samsung, which hopes to sell more 8K TV than 4K in 2022. Cloud gaming could help it achieve these goals by capitalizing on the success of cloud gaming. But to convince subscribers, it still has to specify the performance offered by its televisions. On this subject, the firm still remains relatively fuzzy.

“We are working with partners to bring their best levels of service to our platform”, said Mike Lucero, director of gaming products at Samsung, before adding that “Details will be announced closer to the launch”. Note, however, that the company recently announced the arrival of HDR 10+ on its televisions, which could thus benefit cloud gaming games.

In addition, Samsung specifies that the Gaming Hub will provide user consoles via powered HDMI sources. Both PlayStation and Xbox controllers will also be compatible. Anyway, the arrival of Samsung in the sector will greatly benefit Stadia and GeForce Now, two services that are struggling to take off with the general public.
