Samsung's Gaming Hub platform, one of the most innovative cloud-based gaming services, is now becoming available in Australia. Owners of select Samsung smart TVs and smart monitors released in 2023 can now game on their big-screen devices without needing specialized hardware, save for a gaming controller.
Gaming Hub offers access to leading cloud-based gaming platforms, including Xbox and Nvidia GeForce Now, directly on Samsung TVs. Since its release in mid-2022, the Gaming Hub app exposed millions of Samsung smart TV users to quality gaming without breaking the bank, and it is now available to thousands – if not millions – more Samsung customers in Australia.
