Only last week, Sony announced its 2021 lineup of TVs; all of which come with Google TV. Technically, it can be considered a safe bet if we assume those sets to come with Stadia. TV.
On the other hand, Nvidia GeForce Now is currently available on the Nvidia Shield platform, Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, Android, and in beta versions of Safari for iOS and iPadOS. However, Nvidia GeForce Now is not shipping natively on any smart TVs, so we can say, in the television segment, LG TV is among the first to come with it.
As of now, it is not clear whether these apps will be available in LG TVs of 2020 and earlier models or not. The company only said that they will come to the 2021 models. Interestingly, 2021’s LG TVs will have a new “Game Optimizer” area of settings that conveniently brings together the options like refresh rate, input lag, and others.
