In a brief community bulletin yesterday, the firm noted that the "Steam Link hardware (is) nearly gone". Valve's hardware never really caught on with most consumers-the convenience of playing on a TV doesn't exactly outweigh the cost of buying a Steam Link, plus the hassle of hooking up the device, which is not hard but is also not as easy as simply plugging in a console.

First launched mid-decade, Valve's Steam Link was one of several local game streaming products to hit the market, allowing users to play PC games away from their PC by streaming its contents to another room.

Buying the RSNs could also put Amazon into some contentious negotiations with Comcast and other cable TV companies. Earlier this year, Amazon and the NFL signed a new two-year streaming rights deal for Thursday Night Football .

The Steam Link hardware is a small, unimposing box with an Ethernet port, an HDMI output, and a few USB ports.

"The supply of physical Steam Link hardware devices is sold out in Europe and nearly sold out in the USA", it said.

Over the three years since it was released the device has seen numerous sales on Steam, where you could get it for as low as a couple of Great British Pounds.

If you have bought and regularly use a Steam Link box, Valve has some words of reassurance. So the company has been trying to draw down their Steam Link inventory for some time, and with their latest announcement it looks like they've finally completed the task. "Moving forward, Valve intends to continue supporting the existing Steam Link hardware as well as distribution of the software versions of Steam Link, available for many leading smart phones, tablets and televisions".
