Television manufacturer Samsung is to partner with PC gaming giant Valve to integrate its Steam Link game streaming device into future TV sets.
Announced during the Steam Dev Days developer event in Seattle, the partnership means that in future, owners of new Samsung TVs will be able to stream video games and other content to their television set directly from a computer situated within the same property.
The Steam Link was first released in November 2015 as part of a wider programme intended to make PC gaming a more intuitive living room option.

Samsung already supplies Facebook's Oculus VR with displays for use inside the Oculus Rift headset; Valve collaborated with HTC for the HTC Vive.
"Samsung went with them [rather than Valve going with Samsung]," Epic Games' Sergey Galyonkin, one of the event's attendees, wrote on Twitter. "I believe [Valve] will be happy with everyone else using their tech."
