They said it would be in the later half of the year.
Live TV will be stored and not have to be recorded unless you are wanting to watch it more than 7 days after it's initial showing.
This was on CNBC just a couple of minutes ago.
They called it "Over the Top TV".

I don't remember if this was discussed here or on another forum but...

Intel's plan, if successful, would go further than products currently offered by Apple, Amazon and Netflix by offering live programming as well as on-demand content.

Intel's set-top-box will also have a camera that could be used to automatically steer content and ads toward specific users.

My opinion is that Intel is setting up another failure.

If its not a "value play" then the limitations of the internet will make it a failed play. It is possible that smaller bundles might reduce costs for many consumers. I hope it does because that will force sat and cable to shift to smaller bundles too.

The camera is spooky if you ask me. My Sony TV has a camera too and as a result it isn't connected to the internet :)

Ridiculous. Content owners are still going to want to bundle their product. Not to mention the bit-starved crud that Intel will likely offer...if they ever even do.

simple fix for the camera

I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

Article:

service would be centered on a set-top box and would offer smaller bundles than those currently offered by cable operators, tailored to what customers want


A buffet of smaller bundles could reduce consumer costs for many. If this service doesn't then I don't think it will be successful.

My Sony TV also has a camera. I got some blackout (not the ones that just dim) stickers from LightDims thinking that would do the trick; it didn't. The camera could still see an awful lot. (With my TV it will show what the camera is seeing on a setup screen.)

I've been meaning to try black electrical tape but for the moment I simply have the internet disconnected from the TV.

At least Intel tells people there is a camera. Sony doesn't; I found it by accident digging through setup menus. I wonder how many other products there are with cameras that nobody knows about? :eek2:

Tape will work if the camera on a TV is in the frame, but I've heard that some of them are behind the screen, somewhere.

*Fudge* that! I'm going to give up my privacy for what? So you can sell stuff to me? What a ridiculous idea.
