Onlive and BT launch cloud gaming
September 22, 2011
BT has announced that it will be offering its broadband customers three months free and unlimited access to a PlayPack of more than 100 video games to mark the launch of OnLive’s instant-play game service.
The OnLive Game Service is the new on-demand video gaming platform that delivers the latest video games instantly over a broadband connection. Users can play on their HDTV via the OnLive Game System or on virtually any PC, Mac or tablet via a small browser download. The OnLive Game Service creates an entirely new way to play, watch, share and try premium games from the world’s leading publishers.
Warren Buckley, managing director, BT Retail’s Customer Service, said: “This is a fantastic new service for the UK. The three months free PlayPack subscription is a great offer for BT broadband customers and there are no strings attached. It’s not part of a contract and we’re waiving usage allowances until the New Year. We just want to give our customers the chance to try it, and with more than 100 premium games available, choosing what to play will be the hardest part.”
BT’s exclusive three months free PlayPack subscription has more than 100 regularly updated recent, indie and classic games from more than 50 top publishers. BT customers will also get to enjoy OnLive’s promotions, including their special launch offer of a first individual OnLive game for just £1, worth up to £39.
