Netflix Begins Testing Potential Video Game Subscription Service, Says Report From VGC.
This first step in the game streaming industry begins in Poland, where Netflix subscribers can try out a Netflix mobile game service on Android. The games they can play are Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger things 3.
As per the company’s previous statements, these games will be included in the Netflix subscription at no additional cost. The games will also have no ads and no in-app purchases.
Netflix has previously confirmed its desire to grow in gaming, both through a statement from its co-CEO Reed Hastings and by hiring gaming industry veteran Mike Verdu to lead the charge.
Even though the company has taken these first steps, it also indicates that there is still a lot of work to be done to make it a key service for its customers.
