LG has announced a new partnership with GameFly to bring the video game subscription platform to LG TVs. The GameFly streaming app will be available in the US in April on LG webOS smart TVs.

"The addition of GameFly to the extensive variety of content options, including leading video and music applications, available on LG Smart TVs further enhances the LG Smart TV experience," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "LG Smart TV owners will have the ability to stream high-quality video games right to their TV and enjoy a next-gen console-like experience in the comfort of their home."

The GameFly app uses remote cloud servers to stream console video games over the Internet directly on LG TVs. This eliminates the need for customers to purchase multiple consoles, offering a more afforbale gaming option. The service provides new gaming applications at a low monthly price and offers Streaming Packs with bundles for popular action games like 'Tomb Raider: Game of the Year Edition,' 'Batman: Arkham Origins,' 'F.E.A.R. 3,' 'Darksiders,' and 'Red Faction Armageddon.' Additional GameFly titles include 'Lego Batman 3,' 'Pacman Championship Edition,' and 'WRC4.'

LG customers will be able to download the GameFly app as part of a software upgrade in late April. Supported models will include LG's 2016 Smart TVs featuring webOS 3.0 and 2015 Smart TVs featuring webOS 2.0.

The 2016 LG 65UH8500 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV  ($2,998), LG OLED65E6P 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Flat Smart OLED TV ($7,000), and LG OLED65G6P 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Flat Smart OLED TV ($8,000) with webOS 3.0 are now available for purchase on Amazon. Recommended GameFly gamepads include the Logitech F310 ($20), the Logitech F710 and the Xbox wired controller ($29).
