As promised earlier this year, Samsung has launched its Gaming Hub streaming platform across its range of 2022 Smart TVs.

The move will allow those with compatible devices to access optimized game streaming without the need for a console or PC -- letting them play a range of titles from partner services including Xbox Game Pass, Nvidia GeForce Now, Google Stadia, and Utomik.

Notably, Samsung is also working to bring Amazon Luna to the platform and claims the service will be available through its Gaming Hub "soon."

The platform is powered by Tizen and is compatible with accessories including Bluetooth headsets and controllers. It can also dish out curated recommendations to users based on the latest and most popular games.

"The Samsung Gaming Hub combines Samsung’s leadership in streaming technology with our experience in creating the industry’s most cutting-edge hardware, removing the barriers to entry so people can just play," said Won-Jin Lee, president and head of the service business team at Samsung Electronics.

"With expanding partnerships across leading game streaming services and expert curated recommendations, players will be able to easily browse and discover games from the widest selection available, regardless of platform."

The Samsung Gaming Hub is now available in the United States, Canada, France, Spain, Italy, Korea, Brazil, and the UK.
