You can now stream PC games to 2016 & 2017 Samsung Smart TVs

07 Jul 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

With the release of the Steam Link app in beta, you can play PC games on your Samsung Smart TV. The beta version supports 1080p at 60fps, with 4K support coming later.

PC games on your Samsung TV

Valve (Steam) and Samsung announced in October 2016 that Samsung TVs would come equipped with Steam Link. In the past, you had to buy a separate $50-dollar box to stream games from your PC onto your TV.

The Steam Link app that enables the functionality has been released in beta on 2016 and 2017 Samsung 4K Smart TVs (KU, KS, MU & Q). The app is only available in the US store at the moment but users in Europe can switch to the US store if they want to try it.

Steam Big Picture


With the app you can stream your PC games to your TV over your home network in up to 1080p resolution and 60fps. Valve says that a later update will bump resolution up to 4K. To get started you also need the Steam controller or a wired Xbox 360 controller. Valve will implement support for more controllers in future updates.

Besides Valve and Samsung, Nvidia is offering similar functionality on its Nvidia Shield player. Nvidia’s system (GameStream) recently gained support for HDR.

The final version of the Steam Link app for Samsung Smart TVs will be released globally later this year.
