Steam.tv is back online — just in time for you to let gamers watch Dota two tournament The worldwide while chatting with their friends .
We have a first look at the newest Steam match broadcasting stage a week, even when Valve unintentionally pushed it live.
Last Friday afternoonwe watched that a smattering of reports which PC gaming giant Valve had registered the domain name name Steam.tv, speculating that Valve could soon launch a service designed to take on Amazon’s popular game-streaming website Twitch.tv. Sinceyou understand, E-Sports are kind of a big deal nowadays, with millions upon millions of dollars on the line, and Valve’s own Dota two match may be the attention of one of their biggest E-Sports events of this season , the one that just so happens to kickoff next week.
So you can imagine our surprise when we found that Steam.tv actually went live Friday, and we have one of those sole first looks online.
Here’s what we discovered afterward:
Valve pulled it down Friday, telling c-net it had been pushed live by mistake, but that which we saw was fairly restricted anyway: the Steam.tv website was only showing off The International, that’s the giant Dota two tournament I had been referring to earlier — so it wasn’t exactly allowing any ol’ Steam participant to live-stream their gameplay sessions quite yet.
