On the other hand, the campaign is only applicable to smart TVs running at least webOS 5.0. this is the last LG . operating systemwhich will be used from TVs of the 2020 model year. So, for example, in question The famous LG OLED CX. On the other hand, only new customers of Google Stadia can take advantage of the offer. This means that if you have already subscribed to Stadia Pro, you will unfortunately not be able to get the three free months.
After all, the joint campaign between LG and Google will run until January 31, 2023.

Technically, you’re always up to date on Google Stadia Pro: with its cloud gaming offering, you can gamble in 4K resolution with HDR, 60fps and 5.1 surround sound. However, it is important to know that many games are not originally rendered in 4K. So it is mostly a stable substance. In addition, video compression naturally reduces image quality somewhat. You also have to expect a latency higher than one for example Sony PlayStation 5 or that Xbox Xbox X. Cloud gaming is not yet a complete replacement for a console or even a gaming PC, but it can be a great option, especially for casual games.
