Amazon Luna’s cloud gaming service has launched for Samsung Gaming Hub. You may recall that we covered the Samsung Gaming Hub launch at the end of June.
Powered by the Linux-based Tizen operating system, Samsung Gaming Hub launched for 2022 Samsung Smart TV and Smart Monitor Series as a convenient one-stop-shop for gamers on these devices to access their favorite game streaming services. The hub included Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google Stadia, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, and Utomik.

Amazon Luna now joins this vast partnership. Samsung’s Director of Product Management for Gaming, Mike Lucero, said in a statement:
With Amazon Luna joining Samsung Gaming Hub, we’re giving gamers more choice than ever to play the games they love and discover new ones. The Samsung Gaming Hub is an all-in-one destination for gaming and entertainment. With the addition of Amazon Luna, we now offer over 1000 games to play instantly on Samsung smart TVs, making Samsung Gaming Hub the number one destination for streaming games.
Amazon Luna is Amazon’s game streaming service. It offers a range of subscription channels such as Luna+, the Retro channel and the Prime Gaming channel which offers a rotating selection of games that Prime members can play for free. Unsurprisingly (given that Amazon owns Twitch), Luna allows gamers to stream directly to Twitch if they choose. Amazon Luna is currently only available in the United States.
