This was revealed by Netflix VP of games, Mike Verdu at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference on Tuesday, October 18, 2022.

According to Verdu, “We’re very seriously exploring a cloud gaming offering so that we can reach members on TVs and on PCs. He added, “We’re going to approach this the same way we did with mobile, which is start small, be humble, be thoughtful, and then build out. But it is a step we think we should take to meet members where they are on the devices where they consume Netflix.”
