Sony has now launched their PlayStation Now game streaming service  in beta on certain Samsung Smart TV’s, allowing you to enjoy a number of great games without actually having a console.

PlayStation Now app available in beta for select Samsung Smart TV’s, expanding the PlayStation brand even further.

If you’re curious as to how the service works, you can find the PlayStation Now app through the Smart Hub app store, where it’ll be available. You’ll need a DualShock 4 controller in order to take advantage of the service and the controller is only operable over USB for now. But the entire catalog of games is available to play and should play reasonably well, even in the beta stage.

Sony announced that they were working with Samsung to bring their game streaming service to their Smart TV’s in December of last year, and now they’ve finally realized that goal with the PlayStation Now app available in beta form. Since 2012 the PlayStation Now streaming service has been available on the PS4, PS Vita, PS TV and the recently also the PS3 with over 200 different titles available to play.

PlayStation Now has a 7 day trial to let you decide if streaming games works for your style and your network infrastructure. A good Internet connection is obviously required for a good experience. If you do decide that you want to commit, then you’ll be able to rent games for either 4-hours, 7-days, 30-days or 90-days. If perhaps you’d rather enjoy an unlimited supply of gaming, then you can also subscribe to the service for a monthly fee of $19.99 or $45 for a three-month commitment.

Streaming games over an Internet connection requires a lot of bandwidth and it helps to not have a data cap either. While it’s very ambitious of them to expand their brand so rapidly and increase their gaming reach, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is interest in the community for it either. With the inclusion of PlayStation Network features like multiplayer and integration with your accounts trophies and cloud game saves, it does give you the option of picking up on any device that allows for streaming. That may or may not be enough of an enticement to try the service.
