PlayStation Now game streaming launches on Samsung smart TVs

Starting today, Sony's PlayStation Now streaming service is available on more than just Sony hardware — the company announced that it's now available on select Samsung smart TVs in both the US and Canada. This means that you won't need a console at all to play certain PlayStation games, though you'll still need a Dualshock 4 controller to play them. Sony previously announced its plans to add support for Samsung TVs back in December, making them the first non-Sony devices that work with the service.

Currently, PlayStation Now gives players the ability to stream more than 100 PS3 games. At launch games were available as rentals, though more recently Sony launched a monthly $19.99 subscription fee option, turning the service into something more akin to Netflix, only for games. On Samsung TVs, the service will support standard features like trophies, online multiplayer, and cloud-based game saves.

The service launched on PS4, and in May hit the PS3 as well. In addition to game consoles, it's also available on devices like the Vita, PlayStation TV, and select Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. No word yet on what additional devices may be supported in the future.
