Now, Netflix is starting to use its streaming tech to publicly test its titles on TVs and computers.
Netflix vice-president of games Mike Verdu said his outfit had always wanted to have a game for everyone and it had been working hard to "meet members where they are with an accessible, smooth and ubiquitous service." ,
"Today, we're taking the first step in making games playable on every device where our members enjoy Netflix."
The test appears to be very limited for now. Just two games will be available at the outset: Oxenfree. The beta is only open to a small number of Netflix subscribers in the UK and Canada on Amazon Fire TV streaming media players, Chromecast with Google TV, LG TVs, NVIDIA Shield TV, Roku devices and TVs, Samsung smart TVs and Walmart ONN. The company will add support for more devices later.
