TCL presents full catalog of AAA console quality video games at the world’s leading tradeshow for Consumer Electronics.

TCL, one of the world’s fastest growing TV brands is showing a console quality game streaming experience at its IFA tradeshow booth in Berlin, hall 21B, booth 104.

Game streaming is a technology in which videos of major brands AAA, next generation video games are executed on a remote cloud server, and streamed over the internet directly to the TV set, without requiring a console or the game disc. The App is set to be available on the Netrange App portal Europe wide for TCL consumers early next year, and bring a “Netflix-like” consumption model to next generation console games.

“Premium Console quality experiences used to be restricted to the two console brands”, said Guy de Beer, Playcast Media CEO. ”With our game streaming App, TCL is leapfrogging established console vendors, and extends its value for money leadership to the games space. With our App, TCL is becoming a larger gaming platform than Sony’s PlayStation 4 or Microsoft’s Xbox One, that’s quite astonishing”.

“We are very excited about the launch of the console quality game streaming experience at this year’s IFA, being fully in line with TCL’s current transformation from being a traditional electronics manufacturer to an entertainment technology company,” said Marek Maciejewski, Product Development Director Europe at TCL Multimedia.

“This is fantastic news”, said Jan Wendt, NetRange CEO. “This could be later seen as the start of changing the gaming industry. We have experienced that in music or movies before”.
