Valve "looking at" TV shows, film and music for Steam

Expect "pilot" material this year.

Valve has confirmed to Eurogamer that it's "looking at" introducing things like TV shows, movies and music to Steam, but has nothing to add at this time.

VP of marketing Doug Lombardi had been quoted in an interview on the (excellently named) Tom's Games website as saying that Valve was "looking at other types of content like video and music" for Steam.

"We're definitely having those conversations and meetings, and we're reaching out to folks with other types of digital entertainment," Lombardi said, adding that he thought we'd see "pilot" material "before the end of the year".

Asked if he had specifically meant TV shows, movies, and music albums and singles, Lombardi told Eurogamer: "We're looking at all the things you mention. Soon as we have more to share, we will let you know."

Valve has already dabbled in some video content on Steam, offering access to Team Fortress 2 video shorts.
