LG TO BRING NVIDIA GEFORCE NOW CLOUD GAMING TO WEBOS SMART TVS
LG Electronics (LG) announced a partnership with NVIDIA to be the first TV manufacturer to develop a Smart TV app GeForce NOW, the premier cloud game-streaming service, for LG TVs running webOS.1 Boasting large screen sizes, lifelike picture quality and high refresh rates, LG OLED TVs are a match for GeForce NOW. Currently available on NVIDIA SHIELD, Windows PC, macOS, Chrome OS, Android and Safari web browser for iPhone and iPad, the GeForce NOW app for LG Smart TVs allows gamers to start playing on their LG TVs.
Starting this week, the app will be available in beta in the LG Content Store on select 2021 LG 4K OLED, QNED MiniLED and NanoCell TV models in 80 markets, including Australia. 2 The app will enable LG TV owners with compatible TV models to instantly enjoy more than 35 free-to-play games with a compatible controller and no additional hardware required.
Games include Rocket League and Destiny 2 plus hit titles such as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Crysis Remastered Trilogy, all playable at up to 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second.
