Nvidia's GeForce Now launches on LG 2021 OLED and LCD TVs – updated

18 Nov 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG is the first TV manufacturer to offer Nvidia's game streaming service GeForce Now. The app lets you stream games that you own over the internet to your TV screen – no console required.

GeForce Now on LG TVs

The GeForce Now app launches this week, November 19, on select 2021 LG models (a list of compatible models was not available at press time) in 80 markets. At launch, only free-to-play games are available. - "The app will be available in beta starting this week in the LG Content Store on select 2021 LG 4K OLED, QNED Mini LED and NanoCell TV models in 80 markets. The app will enable LG TV owners with compatible TVs to instantly enjoy over 35 free-to-play games with just a compatible controller, no additional hardware required," said LG. Games include Rocket League, Destiny 2, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Crysis Remastered Trilogy.

GeForce Now supports game streaming at up to 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second with SDR on LG TVs. GeForce Now was already available on Windows PC, macOS, Chrome OS, Android and Nvidia's own Shield box. It supports 4K60 HDR streaming on the latter. FlatpanelsHD first reported on LG's plans to bring GeForce Now to its Smart TVs during CES 2021. At that time, LG also announced plans to bring another game streaming service, Google Stadia, to its TVs but that app has yet to appear. - "LG customers are expecting the best when it comes to gaming on a large screen," said Lee Sang-woo, SVP of corporate business strategy, LG Electronics HE. "Partnering with Nvidia to bring GeForce Now to LG TV owners is a sign of our commitment to deliver the best gaming experience on LG TVs running webOS." GeForce Now pricing can be found below.
