LG and Amazon are partnering to bring Amazon’s cloud gaming service Luna to LG’s smart TVs made from 2021 to 2023 that are running in WebOS 6.0 or newer in the U.S.
According to LG, the partnership with Amazon allows LG smart TV owners to access their games on Luna directly from the Home Screen Game Card on 2023 LG smart TVs, or by downloading the Luna app from the LG Content Store on 2021 and 2022 smart TVs.
Amazon Prime members can play Fortnite and a “rotating selection of games” at no additional cost, LG says, and Ubisoft PC gamers can connect their account to play select games they already own through their smart TV.
Gamers can also subscribe to libraries of games with Luna’s various subscriptions, including Luna+, which includes Ubisoft Multi Access games such as AAA titles and Jackbox Games.
Other popular games on Luna include Resident Evil 2, Lego DC Super-Villains, the Jackbox Party Pack 3 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Luna, Amazon’s cloud gaming service, launched in March 2022, is available in the U.S., Canada, UK and Germany. LG smart TV owners in those regions can start playing by logging into their Amazon account on the Luna app and connect a Luna controller, either a compatible Bluetooth-enabled controller or the Luna Phone Controller app (via iOS, Android and Amazon app stores).
According to LG, the new integration builds on the company’s longstanding devotion to gamers by way of product innovation. Since debuting the UltraGear line of displays built for gameplay in 2018, LG has continued to innovate with gamers in mind, including launching Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Low Latency Mode (LLM) to gaming monitors in 2019 to provide a virtually seamless gaming experience and compatibility with a wide variety of gaming controllers.
