Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, at that. Samsung Access for TV is a subscription plan designed to finance the price of a Samsung QLED television across a 27-month period.
Very similar to what the Korean giant has already done for its smartphone lineup.
Since premium, high-end TVs are an expensive commitment, consumers can opt to purchase or lease the television on a monthly plan. Samsung Access for TV bundles together a select number of Samsung televisions, Samsung Premium Care, and a number of streaming services.
Including Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
You can read up on the company’s terms and conditions for this service here, and it’s a rather long list of stipulation.
But the real highlight is the Xbox Game Pass has found a place among other entertainment services like YouTube TV, YouTube Premium, YouTube Music, SHOWTIME, and SlingTV.
And with the Project xCloud preview program already underway, this would be a perfect time for Microsoft to capitalize on this partnership with Samsung. Just like Sony who previously enabled televisions to run its similar PlayStation Now service a few years back.
After all, this game streaming service is accessible via mobile devices, requiring little more than an Xbox profile and an Xbox One Bluetooth Controller.
Samsung notes that the value of this service, one of which the buyers can choose from the list above, caps out at $120.
This means that presumably, this Samsung Access offer only includes a single year of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Which is enough time for gamers to get their hands wet.
