Samsung announced that, starting next week, it will roll out support for its Gaming Hub on older TVs. This means that those who own a 2021 Samsung Smart TV will soon have access to multiple cloud gaming services, including Xbox Cloud and Amazon Luna.

Samsung announced the new platform earlier this year. Its presumption is that users can play games through cloud gaming services, without the need for a console. So far, the service is powered by Xbox Cloud Gaming, Amazon Luna, Utomik, and Nvidia’s GeForce Now.

When the platform first launched, it was only available on select 2022 Samsung displays. Now, the company is expanding to select 2021 models as well. Microsoft also announced today that it will add rumble support for controllers playing via Gaming Hub. .

One of the services that was on Samsung Gaming Hub was Stadia, which Google has since shut down (officially goes offline next January), so the app will no longer be available on Gaming Hub. Users won’t be down for long, though, as Antstream Arcade and Blacknut Cloud Gaming will launch on the Hub sometime in 2023.
