Will Steam start offering movies, music, and TV shows?
The Steam DB Twitter account found some new application-type IDS for Film, TV Series, Video, Plugin, and Music in Steam binaries after a recent Steam Beta update.
According to IGN, this could mean that Valve is planning to offer more multimedia services on Steam, including movies and TV shows, in its drive to make Steam more accessible in the living room at home.
On the other hand, the app-types could merely be improvements to the currently existing version of Steam. Steam already allows users to purchase video game soundtracks. Also, the Steam Music Beta will allow users to listen to their local music collection while playing games.
