Earlier this year, the Samsung Gaming Hub brought Xbox Game Pass, NVIDIA GeForce Now, Google Stadia and other gaming services to Samsung smart TVs and smart monitors, promising to add new services like Amazon Luna “soon”. Soon, it turns out, is today: Amazon’s cloud gaming service is now available on 2022 Samsung smart TVs.

Samsung says that with Luna, the gaming hub now has over 1000 games available to play. Most of these games require additional subscription fees, but if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can already have access to a small library of games. Very small. Currently, Prime users can play four games (Steel Assault, MYST, Control: Ultimate Edition and Garfield Kart: Furious Racing) included in their subscription.

The selection of free with Prime games changes every month, but users can subscribe to additional channels to expand their library. For example, Luna Plus includes games like Yakuza: like a dragon, Mega Man 11Ghostrunner and Resident Evil VII. Luna’s Retro Channel has a collection of classic games, from centipede until Street Fighter II. Users can also subscribe to channels with Ubisoft and Jackbox game packs, all priced between $4.99 and $17.99 per month. Subscription won’t lock your games to your TV: Luna games are playable on PCs, Macs, tablets, and smartphones.

However, how well all of these games work depends on your connection speed. Amazon Luna and Xbox Game Pass both recommended minimum internet speeds of 10Mbps to 20Mbps on a 5GHz Wi-Fi connection — and of course you’ll also need the aforementioned 2022 Samsung Smart TV and a Bluetooth gamepad. If you have all that, Luna’s Free with Prime games is a great way to stream games on your TV.
