RIP Steam Link: Valve’s streaming gadget has been discontinued

Adjust Comment Print

Valve has announced that it will be discontinuing the Steam Link hardware box. The device has been sold for less and less money over time, and now it's not being sold at all. Supplies in Europe are already sold out, and Valve say they're nearly gone in the U.S. too. The function of the box is also available in Steam Link apps for smartphones, smart TVs and third-party TV cabinets.

At the time of writing the Steam Link can be had on Steam for $60, but stock does seem to be running low. Valve kept the box simple - it was little more than an H.264 decoder with network connectivity and a Bluetooth adapter - allowing it to be small and cheap.

Valve's nifty little Steam Link box has run out of, er, steam, with the company announcing that it's discontinuing the gadget, with stock now sold out in Europe, and nearly gone in the United States too. It says it will "continue supporting the existing Steam Link hardware", alongside its development of the software version of the Steam Link which isn't reliant on its own brand hardware solution.

It's possible that the Steam Link isn't selling enough to warrant continued support.
