Valve have done another push towards video content with Steam now partnering with Crunchyroll to offer certain series of Anime for purchase. They also have a bunch of Anime classed games on sale.
I think this is pretty awesome, but I always like to have my shows available on the move, so until you can play Steam video content on mobile devices, I likely won't buy from it. Although, considering the terrible selection Google Play has for Anime, I might actually consider buying from Steam in future.
We also have to think about SteamOS itself, the more video content it has available to get right away, the better. Still, a simple Netflix application would be nice.
Shows you can now find on Steam:
- Mob Psycho 100
- Taboo Tattoo
- Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club (not free, it's the actual name)
- Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
- 91 Days
- Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches
- JOKER GAME
- And Lots more
