Can Intel’s Web TV Compete With Dish and DirecTV?
Intel Corp. has decided to enter the pay-TV game, and the chip-maker is confident it can get the programming it would need to compete with Time Warner Inc. and DirecTV.
Intel’s plans for a set-top box offering internet-based television were presented Wednesday at the TV of Tomorrow conference in San Francisco. Intel wants to offer streaming TV through the internet like Netflix or Hulu Plus, but with more programming options and a higher price tag like traditional cable.
Intel hasn’t revealed how much the service will cost just yet, but the company said it wants to build a customer base similar to the major satellite cable operators DirecTV and Dish Network. Intel is in talks to get programming from Time Warner, Comcast Corp.’s NBC Universal, and Viacom, with deals that could include popular stations like CNN, USA Network, and MTV.
