Building upon the successful launch of Blacknut’s Cloud Gaming Service on mobile devices, CTM has now added cloud gaming to its CTM Home Media (TV Box), allowing its customers to enjoy streaming video games directly from the interface they are accustomed to, and experience Blacknut in Chinese.
After a successful launch of Blacknut Cloud Gaming, powered by infrastructure provider Radian Arc, to hundreds of thousands of mobile customers in Macau last December, leading telecommunications provider CTM is now extending the experience to the TV screen directly from the interface of its CTM Home Media (TV Box).
Cloud gaming technology removes hardware barriers to bring gaming content to the broadest audience, allowing Blacknut to offer an ever-expanding game catalog with an average of 10 new games added per month. The catalog spans classic AAA games, indie favorites, story-driven adventures, to ensure convenient and appealing options for any member of the family.
The Blacknut gaming experience is now fully integrated with the CTM Home Media (TV Box) User Interface, together with movies & TV shows. It literally transforms the CTM Home Media (TV Box) into a full Cross-Media Entertainment center in the heart of the living-room. Whether CTM customers are long-time gaming enthusiasts or newcomers to the world of gaming, the integration of Blacknut with CTM Home Media (TV Box) brings the best of gaming at a push of the TV remote.
This exciting collaboration includes titles for all members of the family, from beloved characters and captivating stories of movies IP & TV Series such as the Disney LEGO® games collection or the Indiana Jones saga with epic adventures, family favorite characters to play with, one of the largest collections of racing and sports games available allowing the fans to test themselves in the competition of their favorite sports after they watched the events live on their TV.
The democratization of video gaming over the past 40 years and the increased sharing of original gaming IPs across all media industries have removed the boundaries between target user groups. Similar to how past technology breakthroughs shaped the way we interact with content today, Cloud gaming is the technological revolution within the cross-media entertainment landscape which will enable all generations to interact together.
To reach all Macau gamers, Blacknut will now be available in Chinese, allowing Macau customers to fully enjoy the cloud gaming experience in their native language. By expanding language options, CTM and Blacknut ensure that everyone will easily navigate the platform and enjoy their games.
ISPs have invested considerable amounts in content & hardware to develop a user-base for their IPTV services. Blacknut Cloud Gaming easily integrates into their existing eco-systems to transform their legacy TV platform into a full all-in-one entertainment service, including gaming, [...] Our catalog of games, built around well-acclaimed IPs, enables the cross-pollination of users between gaming and traditional media.
