Samsung’s launch of its Gaming Hub platform a while back was accompanied with promises from the company for an expanded library of games, and the gradual addition of more service partners to the platform. With that in mind, Samsung recently announced that nearly 3,000 games will now be accessible to select Samsung smart TVs and monitors.
The announcement coincides with the launch of Antstream Arcade and Blacknut for the Gaming Hub partner lineup, in addition to pre-existing partnerships with Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Amazon Luna, and Utomik. This new development brings over 1,400 games with arcade classics from Antstream Arcade, and over 500 premium family titles and exclusive games from Blacknut.
Antstream Arcade specializes in giving gamers access to retro gaming classics such as Galaga and Double Dragon, which can now be accessed through the Gaming Hub feature on your Samsung TV or monitor (provided that it is a compatible model). It’s also currently offering 12 months of access to the platform for $12, a significant discount to play the platform’s extensive catalog of retro games.
Blacknut is an online video game streaming service that offers instant access to more than 500 games with a monthly subscription, that includes five simultaneously accessible player profiles as well as a game library available on a variety of screens. Blacknut also offers new users a 15-day free trial to check out its catalog and play games on select 2022 and 2023 Samsung TVs.
Additionally, Antstream will be running a Samsung global tournament to coincide with this launch, offering players a chance to win a lifetime subscription of Antstream and to win one of three annual subscriptions. Interested gamers can enter the tournament at antstream.com.
