SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Intel is getting into the TV business. The company has confirmed that it will begin offering a set top-box to deliver movies and TV shows to your television set.
We don’t have a lot of details, but Erik Huggers, corporate VP of Intel Media, spoke at an All Things D event in New York on Tuesday, where he briefly described what appears to be an all-in-one solution. The service includes distribution of live television, what they’re calling “catch-up TV” and On-Demand service, of course connected to the internet.
It’s part of a growing number of devices such as Roku, Google TV, which actually often use Intel chips, and then there’s Apple TV.
