Samsung Electronics has unveiled details for the Samsung Gaming Hub at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Powered by Tizen, the Samsung Gaming Hub is a new game streaming discovery platform that bridges hardware and software to provide a seamless player experience.
Samsung also announced partnerships with leading game streaming services – NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Stadia and Utomik, with more to come – to bring their full libraries of games to the Gaming Hub. The new platform will be available globally later this year on select 2022 Samsung Smart TV models.“Our Samsung Smart TVs provide the ultimate entertainment destination for everyone across generations, interests, and viewing preferences,” said Won-Jin Lee, Corporate President at Samsung Electronics. “We know that gaming continues to increase in popularity for our customers and we have bridged the gap between our Smart TV leadership and advanced gaming software to create an easier way for people to enjoy the games they love, faster. We developed the Samsung Gaming Hub with our incredible content partners to benefit all gamers, and we plan to continue our collaboration to grow the ecosystem.”
“We are excited to kickstart Utomik’s venture into cloud gaming with a great partnership with Samsung,” added Doki Tops, CEO and founder of Utomik. “It starts Utomik’s journey into hybrid gaming, allowing gamers to play games on any device and transition seamlessly to other devices, using both our smart download technology or cloud gaming technology depending on device and context.”
Samsung Gaming Hub will be accessed on the new 2022 Smart Hub via the main navigation menu across Gaming, Media and Lifestyle categories. By selecting the gaming icon, users will be transported directly to the gaming experience and home screen for the Samsung Gaming Hub.
