GameFly, the cloud gaming service, will launch on LG’s webOS Smart TVs in April, the two companies have announced. Through a monthly subscription you will get access to a large catalog of games.

Cloud-based game streaming services allow you to stream games like you would stream movies on Netflix. All games are processed on powerful server PCs connected to the cloud so all you need to enjoy the games is a fast internet connection. No installation required.

GameFly is one of those cloud-based gaming services along with Sony’s PlayStation Now and Nvidia’s Geforce Now. After having launched on Samsung’s Smart TVs and Amazon’s Fire TV boxes, GameFly is bringing its app to LG’s Smart TVs with webOS 2.0 and webOS 3.0.

- ”The addition of GameFly to the extensive variety of content options, including leading video and music applications, available on LG Smart TVs further enhances the LG Smart TV experience,” said David VanderWaal, VP of marketing, LG USA. "LG Smart TV owners will have the ability to stream high-quality video games right to their TV and enjoy a next-gen console-like experience in the comfort of their home.”

GameFly offers several “gaming packs”. Depending on the selected pack you can stream titles such as Tomb Raider: Game of the Year Edition, Batman: Arkham Origins, F.E.A.R. 3, Darksiders, Lego Batman 3 and Red Faction Armageddon. Prices start at $9 dollars per month.

You can use Bluetooth-based controllers such as Logitech F310 and F710 or wired controllers such as the Xbox controller.

The GameFly app will be available on LG’s 2015 TVs with webOS 2.0 via a software update in April. It will also be available on LG’s new 2016 TVs with webOS 3.0 once the TVs hit the market in April.
