Gamers who own a Samsung Smart TV or Samsung Smart Monitor can rejoice: the gaming hub has been upgraded with over 1,900 games with the arrival of cloud gaming platforms Antstream Arcade and Blacknut! Complementing the Xbox Cloud Gaming, NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Utomik services, the newcomers offer retro arcade classics and a host of exclusive family games.
Antstream Arcade: the retro gaming specialist joins Gaming Hub
Antstream Arcade is the world’s largest retro game streaming service. It offers players access to over 1,400 retro titles and 500 mini-games. These include classic arcade games such as Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig Dug and Double Dragon, now accessible directly from your Samsung TV or Samsung Smart Monitor via the Gaming Hub.
“Antstream Arcade offers the best retro arcade video game streaming experience possible. We’re proud to join forces with a partner like Samsung Gaming Hub that will enable us to reach more gamers,” says Steve Cottam, CEO of Antstream Arcade. “We’ve seen how enthusiastic people are about getting back into the games of their childhood and sharing this experience with the next generation of gamers.”
Blacknut: the family cloud gaming platform accessible from the gaming hub
Blacknut offers a wide selection of streaming video games for all members of the family. These include successful licenses such as Metro Exodus and Overcooked, as well as a vast collection of Disney games, exclusive to Europe. Bike enthusiasts can enjoy the TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 2 and Tour de France 2022 games. Players can synchronize up to four Bluetooth controllers to play against each other or in cooperative mode, with team and multi-local games.
To celebrate its integration into the Samsung Gaming Hub, Blacknut is offering new users an exclusive 15-day free trial* to explore the catalog and play over 500 premium video games on Samsung TVs featuring the Gaming Hub (*until August 30, 2023, available only to new Blacknut subscribers who register on the Samsung Gaming Hub).
Samsung Smart TVs and monitors: the best gaming solution?
For many years now, Samsung has catered to gamers with its connected TVs and gaming screens optimized for video entertainment. Last year, a new interface dedicated to video games appeared on the manufacturer’s TVs and connected screens: the Samsung Gaming Hub. Integrating the most complete and varied range of streaming games, it is present on all Samsung TVs marketed since 2022, whether they are Samsung OLED TVs, Samsung QLED TVs or Samsung Smart Monitor screens.
“French consumers have a passion for gaming, and nearly a quarter of our Smart TV users connect to our Gaming Hub every week to play. The most assiduous spend over 2 hours a day. By integrating Antstream Arcade and Blacknut into our existing catalog, we’re offering the widest range of games available on Smart TVs to suit the varied tastes of consumers. We’re giving Samsung Smart TV owners the chance to experience gaming on the big screen, with or without a console, with the same ease of access as a TV channel,” explains Guillaume Rault, Vice President Consumer Electronics, Samsung Electronics France.
