Steam will grant access to music, movies and TV shows

Steam will allow users to access music, movie and television shows from a number of other media services, according to the page for the newly-unveiled SteamOS service.

Valve stated the company has been working with media streaming services users "know and love" to make the function possible.

"We're working with many of the media services you know and love," reads the post. "Soon we will begin bringing them online, allowing you to access your favorite music and video with Steam and SteamOS."

SteamOS, announced today, is a Linux-based operating system that will allow users to play their Steam games in the living room. SteamOS will be free to license for manufacturers building "living room machines" and free to download for Steam users.

Valve has promised more information on these services — the second announcement in its string of three planned for this week — on Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET.
