Samsung's 2020 smart TVs are about to get even smarter

Samsung smart support cloud gaming
The Silicon Review
15 November, 2023

The announcement follows Samsung's August announcement to deliver the version 2500.0 update to TVs manufactured in the 2020's

With the help of cloud gaming applications like Xbox Game Pass, GeForce Now, and others, many older Samsung smart TVs can now run newer games like CyberPunk 2077, Starfield, and more without the need for a console. The announcement follows Samsung's August announcement to deliver the version 2500.0 update to TVs manufactured in the 2020 model year, bringing the option to millions of living rooms globally. Amazon's Luna, Nvidia's GeForce Now (already in beta for 2020 models), and Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass are among the cloud gaming apps that Samsung supports on older TVs. It also comprises Blacknut Cloud Gaming, Antstream Arcade, and Utomik, three lesser-known and smaller businesses.

On 2020 and 2021 TVs worldwide, each of these apps can be downloaded separately; however, the Samsung Gaming Hub experience is not available on more recent TV models. Additionally, Samsung announced today that, starting in 2022 and up, its Gaming Hub interface will support Boosteroid, another cloud streaming service. Thanks to a recent partnership with Microsoft, Boosteroid now offers Call of Duty alongside other games that you may play on a distant high-end PC from other platforms, including Steam, the Epic Games Store, Battle.net, and more. It's not quite a one-stop shop, as services offered on the company's Gaming Hub can change over time, as demonstrated by the recent discontinuation of support for Steam Link.
