It is important for cloud gaming services to make it as easy as possible for people to view their platforms. With cloud gaming apps right on your TV, it’s a cinch to watch a ton of great games. Some of Samsung’s latest smart TVs and smart monitors have a Gaming Hub with some cloud gaming services. The latest to join the mix is Amazon Luna.
Starting today, Luna users can log in with their profile and play games directly through their TV or monitor. You’ll need a Luna Controller or other supported Bluetooth gamepad, but you don’t need any additional hardware. However, keep in mind that Luna is only available in the US for now.
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can play some games at no extra cost through Luna’s Prime Gaming Channel. The channel’s lineup of games changes every month. In August you can see the beautiful Control Ultimate Edition, the classic point and click adventure Myst, Garfield Kart and Steel Attack.
There are several other Luna channels you can subscribe to to play many more games. Those include Luna+, Ubisoft+ (which offers a ton of Ubisoft games), and family and retro channels.
Luna joins the fray just over a month after Samsung began rolling out the Gaming Hub to compatible smart TVs and smart displays. The Gaming Hub also provides access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google Stadia, NVIDIA GeForce Now, and Utomik.
“As Amazon Luna joins Samsung Gaming Hub, we’re offering players more choice than ever to jump into the games they love and discover new ones,” said Mike Lucero, Samsung’s director of product management for gaming, in a statement. “The Samsung Gaming Hub is an all-in-one destination for gaming and entertainment. With the addition of Amazon Luna, we now offer more than 1,000 games to play directly on Samsung Smart TVs, making Samsung Gaming Hub the number one destination to stream games.”
