After launching on PS4 last year, the PlayStation Now game streaming service is slowly making its way to a wider range of platforms. Starting on Tuesday, owners of select Samsung smart TVs will be able to stream PS3 games without a video game console, although a DualShock 4 controller is required to play.

Sony originally announced the partnership last December, but only gave a rough estimate of “the first half” of 2015 for the launch of the service. The PS Now library features over 300 PS3 games available for streaming, all of which you’ll be able to access from your Samsung smart TV.

When the service first debuted on PS4, the only way to stream games was to rent them for 4-hour, 30-day and 90-day rental periods, but the company introduced a $19.99 monthly subscription service earlier this year. The subscription library is more limited, but as of June 1st contains over 125 games. You can see a full list of titles here.

Samsung TVs will also support standard features like trophies, online multiplayer, and cloud-based game saves, The Verge notes. We’ll likely see PS Now continue to expand to more platforms in the future, but Sony hasn’t made any official announcements yet.
