Blacknut and POST Luxembourg are the first to bring 5G Cloud Gaming on iOS smartphones

After teaming up to launch cloud gaming over 5G, cloud-gaming specialist Blacknut and POST Luxembourg, the leading telecommunications group in Luxembourg, have worked together to add iPhone and iPad support to POST’s 5GPower cloud gaming service thanks to a new progressive web app (PWA). The web app allows POST customers who have a 5GPOWER mobile subscription to play on their iPhones and iPads as well as on PC, Mac, Android phone, Amazon Fire Stick and compatible Android Smart TV.

POST Luxembourg becomes the world’s first mobile operator to extend cloud gaming services to Apple iPhones and iPads through Blacknut’s new Progressive Web App (PWA)

The new app makes POST the world’s first mobile operator to offer cloud gaming to its iPhone users. The 5GPower service gives players access to the whole Blacknut games catalogue, which is the biggest of any dedicated cloud gaming platform having recently passed the 500 game milestone. Every game can be played on any supported device, with the ability to start a game session on one device and continue on another.

While Apple currently doesn’t support native cloud gaming apps in its App Store, iPhone and iPad users have been excluded from the play-anywhere experience and convenience that cloud gaming offers. With the launch of this progressive web app (PWA), iPad and iPhone users can now add a button to their home screen, just like an app, that opens a browser connection to the Blacknut service, with the same connection speed and quality as a native app.

Blacknut is a leading cloud gaming provider that enables ISPs, device manufacturers, OTT services and media companies to quickly launch their own streaming games services, as well as serving gamers in 40 countries through its own-brand Blacknut subscription service. POST was the first EU mobile operator to launch Blacknut’s cloud gaming over 5G in October 2020.

“Our business and our passion are very high performance telecommunication networks. We build these networks, including the 5G network, for our residential customers internet, TV and streaming needs, for our business customers, but also for the gaming community who have specific needs, especially in terms of latency. Since launching our cloud gaming service with Blacknut, the response from our subscribers has been beyond our expectations. Now, our customers with iOS devices, and this is the majority of POST customers, can also enjoy the Blacknut cloud gaming experience through this new solution on their iPhone or iPad.,” said Cliff Konsbruck, Director of POST Telecom.

“Apple’s stance on native cloud gaming apps has been well publicised, preventing gamers from accessing streaming services through the normal app channels. No mobile operator wants to launch a service that doesn’t include as many subscribers as possible, so it was important we find a solution. Now, iPhone users can join in the fun and experience cloud gaming the way it should be, “said Olivier Avaro, CEO of Blacknut.

POST subscribers can sign up to Blacknut’s cloud gaming service directly from POST, with the monthly subscription included at no extra cost for the first year. POST customers that don’t opt for the 5G service can still subscribe to Blacknut as an additional service.
