Film - Lionsgate Streams on Steam

Lionsgate

Over 100 blockbuster movies including Hunger Games, Twilight, Divergent & Saw Franchises are going to lead the list of Lionsgate films available to Steam customers soon...

Films are by no means new to Valve's digital streaming platform Steam, which is probably better known for PC gaming but also shows independent short and feature films, documentaries and web series as well as hosting individual film franchises like Mad Max, however Lionsgate has become one of the first major studios to license its films to use the platform.

The partnership will launch with over 100 Lionsgate feature films available to Steam customers, including the full Leprechaun series now available with more titles being added regularly as the partnership continues to expand worldwide. Lionsgate spans eight different film production labels and includes the blockbuster Hunger Games franchise, the Now You See Me, Divergent and John Wick series, Sicario, The Age of Adaline, Roadside Attractions' Love & Mercy and Mr. Holmes, as well as TV shows like Orange is the New Black and Nashville.

"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."

Steam customers will be able to view video on all Steam-supported platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, SteamOS, and in virtual reality via SteamVR. For pricing, availability and more, please visit http://store.steampowered.com/sale/lionsgate
