  • Lionsgate Movies Now on Steam

    Valve passed along word today that they and Lionsgate have partnered to release a metric buttload (my words, not theirs) of Lionsgate films through Steam. This includes movies like The Cabin in the Woods (which is awesome), Kick-Ass (also awesome), and Twilight (not awesome). Anyway, press release time.
    SANTA MONICA, CA, and BELLEVUE, WA, April 25, 2016 - Valve Corporation and Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF0 have formed a ground-breaking partnership under which Lionsgate has become one of the first major studios to license films to Valve's popular Steam digital distribution platform, the two companies announced today. The deal reflects Lionsgate's commitment to monetize its content across an expanding array of digital platforms by offering its movies, television programming and digital content to online audiences around the world.

    The partnership will launch with over 100 Lionsgate feature films available to Steam customers, including movies from the Company's blockbuster Hunger Games, Twilight, Saw and Divergent franchises. More titles will be added as the partnership continues to expand worldwide.

    "We're delighted to partner with Steam, a leader in the digital entertainment and gaming space, as part of our commitment to remain at the cutting edge of innovation in delivering content to online audiences around the world," said Lionsgate President of Worldwide Television & Digital Distribution Jim Packer. "With over 125 million users, Steam represents a unique, exciting and disruptive opportunity to expand our global distribution business."

    "Lionsgate has emerged as a major creative force with a deep pipeline of blockbuster franchises and commercially exciting, star-driven event films, making them important content suppliers for our platform," said Valve head of marketing Doug Lombardi. "Their films are engaging audiences and fostering rich communities around the world, reflecting the kind of high-quality entertainment that we expect to drive the continued expansion of our content offering."

    You are able to watch these on all Steam platforms, which includes Windows, Mac, Linux, SteamOS, and SteamVR.
