I would happily wager that they will end up doing one of those game streaming services right into the living room
i agree with theshaddow. Being able to stream a game to another tv in your house would be very cool. the rest sounds like windows media centre
Yep, since OnLive is dying, this could be their BIG opportunity.

Yeah, because running on those high-spec power hungry servers sitting on fat pipes works so well for onlive. It's not like they've had to restructure into a new company and drop 80% of their team.
Wow the sarcasm nearly exploded my computer.
It's possible for companies to take existing unsuccessful ideas, manipulate them, change the approach, the marketing etc. and make it into a success. Just because one companies stab at something doesn't work, doesn't mean others won't take a shot if they think they have a more successful approach.
Onlive did have to start from nothing, whereas Steam has millions of users that usually try everything valve produces .
if they could stream from my pc to my tv on the living room, that would be something.
think about it, a steam client runing on a netbook or a lower spec laptop, and my pc streaming the content, using wifi or ethernet
now thats something really interesting
The big difference between OnLive and Steam is that steam users do not need the fat pipe. We already have PCs that are capable of running the games, it is simply high sped local network infrastructure that will be required.
If a console port can have the screen remapped to the TV for a social gaming session that is a big plus in my book (especially if free).
Gabe says 'this is another interesting but not valuable contribution'
why does it have to be games
Valve, please move into the tv show and movie market. and get steam installed onto TV's or on virgin media.
I already like playing youtube videos via my paired smartphone to virgin media.
If you could turn my phone into a controller, and then let me play the casual games from steam on my TV, that would be brill
looking forward to this, always wondered why it didnt exist before,
So does this mean I can connect a USB hub to my tv and connect mouse and keyboard and it will work?
You could always use Steam on a TV, this just means it will be easier to see/navigate from a distance.
