Samsung Electronics has launched a new service called the "gaming hub" to let users play games on their smart TVs. This means users can easily and instantly access game streaming content, and no console or PC is needed as people can start playing with just the Samsung Smart TVs.

As per Pulse News, Samsung Electronics announced a few days ago that its new "Samsung Gaming Pub" will be available on its latest smart TV units. Users can play games on television, and title selections are wide-ranging. There are many popular games, and they were made available through partnership deals with the Korean electronics company.

Some of the games that can be accessed via Samsung Gaming Hub include Google's Stadia, Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass, NVIDIA's GeForce NOW, and Utomik. Amazon's Luna is not yet available but will be added very soon for all users, while Stadia and Utomik have yet to arrive in South Korea.

Those who will activate the Samsung Gaming Pub game streaming platform will be able to play games without buying new hardware or downloading the title. To start playing, they can simply connect their game controllers and Bluetooth headsets.

It should be noted that while the gaming hub is already integrated into Samsung smart TVs, owners who would like to use the gaming hub must still register for the subscription service. Once signed up, they can choose from more than 100 titles and start playing cloud games such as "Halo Infinite" and Forza Horizon 5." Cloud games is a video game that makes use of remote servers in data centers.

The service is available on all 2022 Samsung Smart TVs and Neo QLED 8K units, but the company is also planning to make its new Samsung Gaming Hub available on older smart TV models starting with the 2021 smart TV models by the end of 2022.

Aju Business Daily reported that the new service is an all-in-one streaming platform because, other than gaming, it also supports multitasking as users can do other things such as listening to music and browsing through the available videos.

"With expanding partnerships across leading game streaming services and expertly curated recommendations, players will be able to easily browse and discover games from the widest selection available, regardless of platform," Le Won Jin, Samsung's head of service business team, said in a statement.

He added, "The Samsung Gaming Hub combines Samsung's leadership in streaming technology with our experience in creating the industry's most cutting-edge hardware, removing the barriers to entry so people can just play."
