Those who subscribe to Drei HomePlay will be allowed to create up to five player profiles that will work across the whole account. These player profiles can be utilized on the desktop, mobile, and SmartTV applications that Blacknut offers.
"We selected Blacknut not only for its extensive expertise in cloud gaming but also because of their great scalable streaming technology ideally designed for carriers and their ability to deploy it to reach even more users and gamers. We are proud to be the pilot country within the 3 Group to bring cloud gaming to our subscribers in Austria, and look forward to growing our partnership with Blacknut." - Guenter Lischka, Division Manager Consumer of Drei.
