Netflix is testing broadcasting games on television

Netflix has announced the expansion of its cloud gaming experience to the United States, in an update to its blog post.

This feature allows users to play cloud-streamed games on devices like televisions and computers. It was first launched in August in Canada and the United Kingdom.

In their blog post, Netflix cautioned that this trial is limited, meaning it won't be available to many people initially. This aligns with the company's approach during the initial launch in Canada and the UK. As in the initial trial, only two games are available for streaming: "Oxenfree" by Night School Studio and another game titled "Molehew’s Mining Adventure."

If you're using this service, you'll need to download the dedicated Netflix Control app on your iPhone or smartphone to play games on your television. The company states that the games will work on specific devices, such as Amazon Fire TV, Google TV with Chromecast, Roku devices, and more. Additionally, you can play games through a web browser using a mouse and keyboard.

Netflix is gradually expanding its library of games as part of its strategy to offer more benefits to its subscribers. While most games are available on mobile devices, the company is showing interest in expanding beyond iOS and Android platforms.

According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, the company plans to release games based on successful content like "Squid Game," "Wednesday," "Extraction," and "Black Mirror." Discussions have also been held with Take-Two regarding licensing a game based on a game series, as mentioned.

It's worth noting that Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass service leads the list of cloud gaming services for video games. This implies that any company aiming to compete in this field must be prepared to face this giant.
