Netflix Trials Cloud Gaming in Canada and UK

Date:

Since 2021, when we added mobile games to Netflix, we’ve been working together to create an exceptional gaming experience for our members. Our goal has always been to have a game for everyone, and we work hard to meet members where they are with an accessible, seamless, and ubiquitous service. Today, we’re taking the first step to making games playable on all devices our members enjoy Netflix on – TVs, computers and mobiles.

We’re launching a limited beta test with a small number of members in Canada and the UK starting today on select TVs, and on PCs and Macs via Netflix.com on supported browsers in next weeks. Two games will be part of this initial test: Oxenfree from Night School Studio, a Netflix game studio, and Molehew’s Mining Adventure, an arcade gem mining game. To play our games on television, we introduce a controller that we already have in hand most of the time: our phone. PC and Mac users can play Netflix.com using a keyboard and mouse.

This limited beta is intended to test our game streaming technology and controller, and to improve the member experience over time. Games on TV will work on select devices from our initial partners including: Amazon Fire TV Casting Devices, Chromecast with Google TV, LG TV, Nvidia Shield TV, Roku Devices and TVs, Samsung Smart TVs, and Walmart ONN . More devices will be added over time.

By making the games available on more devices, we hope to make the games even easier to play for our members around the world. Although we are still in the early stages of our gaming journey, we are excited to bring joy to our members through gaming. We look forward to hearing feedback from our testers and sharing more as we move forward.
