For several years now Steam has been selling numerous movies and television series through the Video section. Several times a year, the store organized and sold bargains, in order to further attract the attention of the filmmakers. It seems that Steam, as a platform, is not profitable enough in this plan, and Valve decided to abolish the section and stop selling movies, series, and documentaries that do not have any touch points with gaming.
"Having considered what the Steam users actually wanted to see, it became clear to us that we should focus our efforts on offering content that is either related to gaming or games and software that is sold to Steam," reads the blog post.
Valve explained that retirement on the Video tab is inevitable, and all videos related to gaming can be revealed through the remaining possibilities of the store. Many videos that do not have touch points with gaming will be completely removed from Steam in the coming weeks, including numerous comedy events, as well as Hollywood blockbusters from Mad Max: Fury Road and Kill Bill. It is assumed that the numerous seasons of anime television series could see the same fate. If something has already been purchased, it remains your and ready for future viewing. The numerous documentary shows about how a game is made and should continue to remain part of the store.
