Samsung announced a partnership with streaming company Boosteroid to help bring video games to more people around the world without needing a device like an Xbox or PlayStation console.
People with a supported Samsung smart TV, monitor, or projector can now access the Boosteroid app to play games. Boosteroid is just the latest cloud gaming app for Samsung smart TVs, following Xbox, Nvidia GeForce Now, Amazon Luna, Utomik, Antstream Arcade, and Blacknut.
The Samsung Gaming Hub is already available on Samsung 2023 and 2022 smart TV and monitor models. Samsung has now announced that support has been added to Samsung 2020 smart TV models to enable game streaming on a larger network of devices. Support rollout for 2020 models actually began earlier in 2023 in the United States and Canada, but is now available worldwide.
Customers can download individual apps from the Samsung app store directly from their TV, log into their account and play any supported game in the catalog. The Xbox app, for example, allows players to stream games like Starfield, Halo Infinite, Microsoft Flight Simulator and many others.
While gamers don’t need a console to play any of the Samsung Gaming Hub games, you will need a controller of some type. The Samsung Gaming Hub supports Xbox and PlayStation controllers, as well as the Luna controller. If you don’t have a controller, the app supports virtual controllers on your phone or even your existing TV remote.
