Netflix wants to expand its video game section and deliver titles to play on TV

Netflix still thinking about the video games as a high-value added product for its users and wants to deliver titles to be played on TV, an extra to the mobile games it already delivers.

According to Bloombergthe company is thinking about providing games to play (redundancy aside) on our TVs. We could be talking about an extra cloud platform where users can connect a controller and enjoy.

Netflix and video games

Netflixfor years, has set out to deliver video games As an extra way to compensate its users.

In addition to buying some studios, it has started creating video games based on its original series, which it currently delivers to users for iOS and Android.

However, references to a gaming option have now been found in the same Netflix app for TVs.

When analyzing that code there was mention of the possibility that their games could be played on the TV, and also indicated that “a game on your TV needs a controller to be played. Do you want to use this mobile as a video game controller?”. However, it is not known if other conventional controllers such as those from PS4 o Xbox will be supported.

For BloombergThis launch could be coupled with a cloud platform, which would empower people’s gaming.

Games as an extra
