Samsung’s 2022 QLED Televisions Just Became a Better Option for Gamers
The Gaming Hub of Samsung TV just got a brand new upgrade; with the Amazon Luna game streaming service finally finding its way to the platform.
Prior to this day, the only way to play Amazon Luna games on a TV was with a Fire TV devices, such as the Fire TV Stick (2020), Fire TV Stick 4K, or the Fire TV Cube. But now, anyone who owns or has access to a 2022 Samsung TV with the Samsung Gaming Hub can now access Luna’s games but only in the event that you’re also subscribed to the service.
Luna now joins the Xbox TV app, a platform that is also currently exclusive to Samsung’s 2022 smart TVs, and also inclusive of Google Stadia and GeForce Now. With the addition of Amazon Luna to the platform, Samsung’s Gaming Hub now gives players and gamers alike easy access to more than 1,000 several cloud-based games.
What Is Amazon Luna
This platform as you should know shares plenty of similarities with other gaming streaming platforms and services. Rather than games running on a local console just like a PS5 or Xbox Series X, they’re taken care of by external servers and then streamed to your TV over the internet.
The process is very much like how Netflix streams show to your TV rather than you playing a DVD with your own player on your end. All you need in this situation is uninterrupted access to the internet, a screen on which the game can be streamed, and lastly a compatible Bluetooth controller.
Where Amazon Luna is unique is in its pricing structure. Rather than paying to play all the games on its platform, you can instead mix and match various Channels to suit your taste and needs. There’s the generic Luna+ option for gamers that want a bit of everything but also there are Family, Retro, Jackbox Games, and Ubisoft channels.
Amazon Prime Members Additionally Access Free Games
Amazon Prime members additionally can get access to some free games as part of their subscription plan and model. This very type of rotating pool of titles isn’t the broadest (available at just four options at this moment) but it’s absolutely free. And as at the time of this writing, it includes some pretty great games such as Myst and Control.
If you are however keen to try out a gaming streaming service, Amazon Luna is a great option and place to start because of its affordable price. Making use of one of the titles in its free Prime Gaming collection, you can quickly and simply put your internet to the test to see if you have the bandwidth needed to play games reliably and smoothly without having to invest anything but just a bit of time.
