GameFly expands streaming service to Samsung TVs

Launched exclusively for Amazon's Fire TV set-top device, the popular game rental company's streaming service is going bigger, and going global.

In June, GameFly launched a streaming service this summer which puts triple-A games onto TVs -- but the only catch was that it was exclusively targeted at Amazon's Fire TV Android set-top box.

That's no longer the case: The company has expanded the service to Samsung Smart TVs, in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The news came to Gamasutra via The Next Web.

Game streaming is a long-promised disruptor of the PC and console space but has yet to truly take off; however, as it becomes more technologically feasible and available on wider-adopted devices, like Samsung's popular HDTVs, there's more of a chance it'll significantly catch on.

Sony has also launched its PlayStation Now service, which streams PlayStation 3 games, on Samsung's TVs. Cable provider Comcast and Electronic Arts have also inked a deal to bring games to TV subscribers.
