Steam now has a bunch of Anime shows you can buy, also a sale on Anime games

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:

M@yeulC2. DRM free. I don't buy DRM-ed movies.
This is why I buy Blu-Ray movies and shows and I rip them. I don't think there's any other reliable way of (legally) getting DRM-Free movies and shows.

There is DRM on Bluray and they will even use online verification with ultra HD Bluray. And in most country's ripping them is illegal or a grey area. I get your point but I think people should know what is coming :/

Portuguese Language support is missing...
Sorry!!!

I'll wait for more DRM-free video on GOG. Unfortunately, last time they tried, they failed because of media control freaks. Otherwise, no thanks. Video is already polluted with DRM everywhere.

Just a +1 for DRM-free downloadable videos in a standard format (mkv). The experience with streaming videos is too bad to consider paying for that.

From the comments on Steam it seems that some shows are censored too, so customers not only have to deal with Flash and sub-par encoding quality, they also don't get to see the full episodes...

a lot of people here are saying that crunchyroll video quality is bad. i have been a subscriber for years now and honestly, i have no issues. i dont know if people are expecting 4K or something but Crunchyroll supports 1080 well on my connection. and i watch a lot :/ (im in the UK, not sure if that makes a difference)

I picked in Mod Psycho on steam, looks fine to me. :/

emphy
AryvandaarThis is a good step forward, but I'm not going to pay per episode.

Assuming you are okay with all the other problems mentioned in the comments: you can get entire seasons in bundles.

Yeah, but I don't really buy series unless I really love them. For everything else there is streaming.

rea987My biggest problem with Crunchyroll is the region blocked content and Flash Player requirement for desktop users.

I use the plugin for Kodi and it works really well.

As someone who lives in Europe, CR is simply better than Funi, Hulu, or any of the other legal alternatives. And illegal stuff is illegal, so you shouldn't do it.
