Netflix Games on more devices

Streaming platform Netflix is expanding its gaming offerings to more platforms. The company added mobile games to the Netflix app for Android and iOS devices in 2021. Now, Netflix has announced that it is testing games on more devices, including TVs, PCs, and Macs.

“Our goal has always been to have a game for everyone, and we are working hard to meet members where they are with an accessible, smooth, and ubiquitous service. By making games available on more devices, we hope to make games even easier to play for our members around the world. While we’re still very early in our games journey, we’re excited to bring joy to members with games. We look forward to hearing feedback from our beta testers and sharing more as we continue on the road ahead,” said Mike Verdu, VP of Netflix Games.

Initially, Oxenfree from Night School Studio, a Netflix Game Studio, and Molehew’s Mining Adventure, a gem-mining arcade game, will be available in the testing phase. To play games on TV, users can use their smartphone as the gaming controller, while PCs and Mac users can play on Netflix.com using a keyboard and a mouse.

Netflix said that the purpose of this limited beta is to test its game streaming technology and controller and enhance the user experience over time. Netflix games on TV will be available on select devices, including Amazon Fire TV Streaming Media Players, Chromecast with Google TV, LG TVs, Nvidia Shield TV, Roku devices and TVs, Samsung Smart TVs, and Walmart ONN. The company will continue to add more devices over time.

Netflix is rolling out a limited beta test to some members in Canada and the UK on select TVs. The beta test will expand to PC and Mac users through the Netflix website on compatible browsers in the coming weeks.

Q: So if it is going to be about original content, it is also then going to be linked I would imagine to more flexibility when it comes to pricing plans because that is what we are seeing happen at least in markets like India. So are you going to be forced to maybe be much more competitive on the pricing side as well?

A: Netflix is only Rs 500 a month here which is consistent with our global pricing.

Q: Amazon is that much for a year, I believe.

A: Yes, but they do not have our shows. They have some content and then there is lots of stuff on YouTube for free. So think of it as, there is free content, there is cheap content and then what we try to do is have great content, have very unique shows with very special things and to make it easy to subscribe and join.
