LG Smart TV Owners Get Console-less Gamefly
« on: March 01, 2016, 05:46:04 PM »
A while back, Samsung showed off some of their Smart TVs that had capability to stream and play games from the Sony Network. Now that Sony is tied up, LG had to go somewhere else and they have been working with streaming service Gamefly to bring their library directly to your TV without a console. This is great for casual games, but serious gamers will still likely want a console. Is this enough to make you choose a TV brand? LG is hoping so.

   LG announced on Tuesday that it will be adding a streaming app from video game rental service Gamefly to its WebOS-enabled smart TVs in late April -- much like its recent deal with Samsung. The new app will allow users in the US to stream Gamefly's archive of gaming titles. You'll need a TV with WebOS 3.0 or above to use the app, though model year 2015 sets running WebOS 2.0 will get a software update to the newest revision alongside the app's launch.Source: Engadget
