LG smart TVs get Stadia gaming service on board – News

LG Electronics has announced a partnership with Google at CES. In the second half of this year, Stadia, the internet giant’s gaming service, will be baked into LG smart TVs as standard.

Stadia will first be available on televisions with the Google TV operating system, but LG promises to support the cloud gaming service immediately afterwards via its own webOS. According to the South Korean electronics giant, this development is extra interesting for Stadia Pro users (the paid premium variant of the service), because most compatible LG screens already come with 4K image quality and 5.1 surround sound.

Games that will soon be playable via Stadia on an LG smart TV include Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion and NBA 2K21. The only thing left for the user to take care of is a Stadia controller.
