OnLive is Coming to Google TV

Posted Thu Jan 12, 2012 at 07:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

The game streaming service will now be a standard feature on all current and future Google TV devices.

For some, getting games from OnLive doesn't make a lot of sense. If you have a decent gaming PC you'll see better graphical quality by installing the game proper and console owners and PC folks alike will have less lag playing locally. If you don't own a system at all though, OnLive is a nice alternative.

OnLive has made a huge move towards wooing those that might not otherwise by buying games. The service will soon be available on all current Google TV devices as well as included in upcoming devices. If Google TV purchases pick up, OnLive could soon be reaching a significant audience that doesn't have to pay a dime to check it out.

What OnLive has not yet revealed is just how users will be controlling these games. For now, you can check out the OnLive Viewer, which gives you access to OnLive social features. It's currently on Google TV and is, of course, free.
