Valve’s Steam Now Serving Movies from Lionsgate

Most of us probably think of Steam as a place to get PC games, but Valve’s digital platform also offers movies and other types of video content to members. Today, Lionsgate and Valve launched a catalog of new movie titles on Steam that includes blockbuster films such as Kill Bill: Volume 1 & 2, The Last Witch Hunter, and Kick-Ass.

In addition, the catalog also features entire franchise films from The Hunger Games, Twilight, and The Divergent Series.

Steam has over 125 million users, so the Lionsgate partnership must have been a no-brainer for the studio who is looking to further monetize their catalog. Lionsgate says more titles will be added as the partnership expands worldwide.

Videos can only be streamed at this point (no downloading allowed) and Steam clearly states no refunds are given on titles payed for. Video rentals from Steam cannot be gifted either.

Steam appears to include all resolutions for the same price, as there are no separate rental options for SD or HD. However, if bandwidth allows videos from Steam will play in up to 1080p (Full HD).

Most titles are $3.99 to rent, but some titles from Lionsgate are bundled such as the Leprechaun Four Film Collection priced at $7.99.

Videos can be viewed using the Steam desktop client for Windows, Mac, Linux, SteamOS, and in virtual reality via SteamVR.
