One thing Samsung has always been criticised for is taking the Apple approach to its products - that is, dropping support for a product as soon as next year's models are out. But that's set to change now that the South Korean company is rolling out cloud gaming support to some of its older TVs.

In the latest of a long string of AV news to come out of Gamescom 2023, the TV giant announced that consumers who have Samsung smart TVs made in 2020 will be able getting cloud gaming apps so that they can game without a console.

“Today, we are thrilled to announce that we will expand cloud gaming apps to our 2020 model-year TVs later this year, giving tens of millions of players access to their favourite games and services,” said Samsung's head of product for gaming, Mike Lucero.

2020 year model owners won't be getting the snazzy Samsung Gaming Hub interface that debuted in 2022, but Samsung is adding the individual apps to the App Store, so you'll be able to download the likes of Game Pass and GeForce Now separately.

Unfortunately, Samsung TVs manufactured prior to 2022 won't be getting any additional support, so while this is great for a specific subset of individuals who happen to have bought Samsung TVs in 2022, it still leaves a lot of people out in the cold.

Samsung has been increasing its support for game streaming services, fully implementing them into the Gaming Hub in its range of 2022 TVs.
