Valve to eventually offer TV, music, and movies through Steam Machines, SteamOS

Wednesday, 15th January 2014 20:01 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Valves is looking to add music, movies, and TV to Steam OS further cementing its place in the consumer’s living room.

According to Anna Sweet, who is in charge of general business development, focusing on Steam distribution and Steamworks integration, the firm wants to “add music, movies, and TV to Steam OS before it gets released to consumers.”

Such properties would be released on Steam Machines.

Valve had previously said it would bring other forms of entertainment to SteamOS last year.

Thanks, Gamasutra.

    Well.. then they got their work cut out for them…

    they have a Media tab in the Steam client but I’ve never seen it used..

    There is simple functions that Steam still don’t have yet. like comparing games with friends in a much easier way that what is now…

    I got 4 regular gaming friends and I cant compare games with them to see what everyone has…
    its a hassle to go thuoght 300+ games on steam clicking on each one..

    yeah.. I know.. World first problems … but you know stuff happens, Steam sale happens..

    I currently have my Steam big picture mode config with XBMC set to launch as an app, all in a gamepad environment.

    Good to see Valve is on top of this.

    Ok great and cool feature but don’t PR on this too much, I still have MS “media portion” bad taste in my mouth. No need to make me swallow the pill again.

    If they plan on selling movies and music they had better plan on making a lighter, less resource heavy version of their client.
