LG Smart TV owners can soon stream Gamefly titles

You won't even need the actual console.


LG announced on Tuesday that it will be adding a streaming app from video game rental service Gamefly to its WebOS-enabled smart TVs in late April -- much like its recent deal with Samsung. The new app will allow users in the US to stream Gamefly's archive of gaming titles. You'll need a TV with WebOS 3.0 or above to use the app, though model year 2015 sets running WebOS 2.0 will get a software update to the newest revision alongside the app's launch.

What's more, users reportedly won't need an actual console to access the app, just a gamepad (ie the Logitech F710) and a Gamefly Streaming subscription to access games like Tomb Raider, Batman: Arkham Origins, F.E.A.R. 3 and Darksiders as well as more family-friendly fare.
