NVIDIA launched GeForce Now in 2015 after testing its GRID game streaming technology for a few years. As the name suggests, the service enables NVIDIA console owners to stream a variety of PC games provided that they have a good internet connection and are paying monthly for the service. There’s good news for GeForce Now members as the company has decided to make GeForce Now free for the NVIDIA Shield.

NVIDIA has sent out emails to subscribers confirming that the service is now free. The company says that it’s going to upgrade the GeForce Now service for subscribers over the next few months.

They will continue to have access to their membership titles during this time as well as the games they have purchased through the GeForce Now store. NVIDIA has stopped billing subscribers’ accounts for $7.99 per month from May 15th in order to make the transition to the free service as smooth as possible.

It’s unclear if GeForce Now has temporarily been made free or if this is a permanent move as NVIDIA hasn’t confirmed that. What the company has said is that it’s going to provide more information about this and the changes that it’s working on in the future.
