Intel is Working on an IPTV Service

Posted Thu Mar 15, 2012 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

According to reports, it could launch as early as 2012.

IPTV is something that’s been talked about for years, but never fully realized in any significant way. The success of streaming services like Hulu, Netflix and Amazon show that customers may be ready to embrace an internet based solution.

Intel is sure hoping so, as the company is planning its own IPTV solution that may be launching as early as the end of this year. Nothing is set in stone yet, but Intel is setting up to compete directly with both cable and satellite companies with the new service.
