The "public test" for Steam's Big Picture mode – a television-friendly version of its online store and platform – went live today.

The beta was first announced last week in The New York Times, and Valve has since released videos showing how the service can be set up. Games on Big Picture can be played with controllers or with a keyboard and mouse set-up, and players can also use the service to surf the web, navigate Steam, and chat.

Steam's Big Picture mode is currently only available on PC, with a Mac beta "coming soon".

The set-up walkthrough video can be viewed below.
