Now Intel Wants To Become Your Cable TV Provider

Intel is busy behind the scenes working deals with the likes of CBS, News Corp, NBC and Viacom for programming rights, preparing for the future Intel Cable Company. Firm details are sketchy at this point as to fees and a possible start date, but Intel is hedging the bet against the sagging PC market and the components market associated with it. It’s almost a sure bet that sometime in the near future you will have the option to join up with Intel Cable.

While Intel has not said how much it plans to charge for its TV service, Huggers has billed it as a premium product, rather than a cut-rate option for consumers hoping to save money by canceling their cable subscriptions.
