States can go to the Premium Apps menu on their TVs and
play video games on demand.
With a single purchase, OnLive games can be played on
any OnLive-compatible device-on PC, Mac, many Android
tablets, TVs with the OnLive Game System, and now LG G2
TVs-anywhere there is broadband. OnLive also enables
cross-platform multiplayer gaming, so that an LG G2 TV
owner will be able to play with (or against) friends on
PCs, Macs and tablets.
Games can be demoed free and purchased or rented a la
carte, or players can subscribe to the OnLive PlayPack
for unlimited play of more than 200 games. OnLive also
offers free access to unique social features, such as
game spectating in the OnLive Arena, recording
ten-second Brag Clip videos of players' best gaming
moments, and sharing videos and Achievements with
friends on OnLive and Facebook.
