Addition of Blacknut, and New ‘Gaming Shelf’ on Latest LG TVs Showcases Company’s Commitment to Putting Gamers’ Needs First.

LG Electronics (LG) is expanding the gaming experience on its latest TVs, adding new cloud-gaming services to give users more choice, and a UI update that makes it easier to ‘get in the game.’ These latest upgrades are representative of LG’s continuing commitment to bringing gamer-centric content and capabilities to its industry-leading TVs.

Requiring no PC, console, or game installations, cloud-gaming platforms make gaming more accessible than ever. Blacknut is arriving on LG TVs in September(1), delivering a wealth of titles spanning classic AAA games, indie favorites, story-driven adventures, sports, strategy and more. Via monthly subscriptions, the app offers users the ability to select and instantly play any game from their extensive catalogs – with welcome new titles monthly.

The Blacknut catalog offers the largest collection of racing and sports games in the cloud gaming space, but also critically acclaimed hits, such as Metro Exodus, Overcooked and a vast collection of Disney games.

The new cloud gaming app will be arriving starting this month on the LG Apps Store on LG TVs running webOS 6.0 and webOS 2022. And thanks to LG’s newly updated gaming UI, users will soon be able to find a range of popular cloud gaming services on the convenient Gaming Shelf(2), which can be easily found on the new Home Screen.
