LG announced during today's CES press conference that it plans on bringing both GeForce Now and Google Stadia to its 2021 TV lineup. Both cloud gaming services are expected to become available in the second half of the year.
Google Stadia is set to launch first, with GeForce Now following afterwards, although LG didn't announce any release dates just yet. At the moment, the services are only confirmed for the company's 2021 TV lineup.
The announcement shows that both Nvidia and Google are looking to expand to more platforms in 2021. LG TVs use webOS as their operating system, meaning that apps need to be developed specifically for them.
The main draw of both GeForce Now and Google Stadia is found in how they enable their subscribers to play video games without having to worry about building a powerful PC. However, each service has its own approach.
In the case of GeForce Now, you're just paying for the ability to stream video games on Nvidia's servers. As long as you own them on one of the major stores (Steam, Epic, Ubisoft Connect) and they're part of GeForce Now's supported library, you're good to go.
Google Stadia also requires you to purchase each video game you plan on streaming, bringing it closer to a virtual console of sorts.
To catch up on which titles you can play using the cloud gaming services – whether now or when you'll get your hands on one of LG's 2021 TVs – you can find the GeForce Now list linked at the top and Stadia Pro's games here.
