StarHub, the only telecommunications provider in Singapore, will be bringing NVIDIA's cloud gaming service to the country.
Like many of the other telecom partnerships with cloud gaming providers, this one is no different. GeForce Now will run off the current infrastructure in place by StarHub and utilize StarHub's 5G and fiber networks to bring low-latency cloud gaming to its subscribers.
This will be the first for the Southeast Asia market, as cloud gaming is a little bare in those parts of the world. But, a necessary step forward for making cloud gaming available to all!
"The future of gaming is in the cloud, and 5G is set to deliver a whole new world of entertainment to more customers, be it casual or avid gamers. We are eager to enable our customers to play without the hassle of hefty downloads and equipment upgrades, and to truly have fun without limitations." - Johan Buse, Chief, Consumer Business Group, StarHub.
The partnered service will launch in Singapore in the third quarter of 2021, with monthly and yearly subscription plans available to all consumers. Those who are StarHub customers will expect to see some additional deals for the service.
It is unsure what the subscription prices will be set at when the service launches, but currently, the service is $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year in the United States.
"StarHub is a welcome addition to the GeForce NOW Alliance as our first deployment in Southeast Asia. StarHub’s world-class 5G network is the perfect platform to stream GeForce NOW to millions of gamers in Singapore." - Phil Eisler, VP and GM of GeForce Now, NVIDIA.
