E3 2012: OnLive claims millions of subscribers and showcases Smart TV capabilities

The streaming service also says it's has 100 per cent uptime since launch
Publish date:

Games streaming service OnLive has been bullish at this year's E3, claiming that it has 'millions' of subscribers and now almost 300 games in its portfolio.

It launched two years ago, with a mere 19 games on offer, and some eyebrows were raised as to how well the subscription service could do in the long-term.

On the surface, OnLive is certainly confident and has used E3 to showcase a range of new developments.

It is now available not only on PCs and Macs, but also on TVs, tablets and smartphones, via wired, wireless and even phone networks.

A new deal with LG will integrate OnLive's game streaming with the Smart TV. An OnLive spokesperson said: "Even better, these are 3D TVs, so once we get a few 3D games and enough TVs in the field, we’ll enable the 3D capability."
