Nvidia GeForce Now on TVs from LG and Samsung only in 1080p

The fact that the two cloud gaming offers GeForce Now and Google Stadia are represented on TVs from LG and Samsung has been the case per se since 2021. In 2022, however, the start of both cases will be somewhat more extensive, because the apps from the cloud gaming providers are pre-installed ex-works on the televisions of the two South Korean companies. Unfortunately, there is also a downer.

So Nvidia has stated that GeForce Now even for the first half of 2022, the 4K resolution and high dynamic range representation of his own Shield TV reserves. Only from the second half of the year will they check which televisions could also be used to increase the resolution. But that will also depend on the chips in question. It currently looks like you can use Nvidia GeForce Now on the Smart TVs from LG and Samsung in a maximum of 1080p.

Google Stadia, on the other hand, is also available on the Smart TVs in 4K with HDR. So this service is currently the better choice on televisions. It should be noted, however, that “4K” is often only formally valid at Stadia: Although the video stream comes in 4K resolution, it is upscaling. In many cases, the games are natively calculated in significantly lower resolutions.
