Intel Media Opens Up Shop in LA and NYC to Start Up Internet TV Service
Set-top boxes like the Roku and Apple TV have given Internet services like Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu (not to mention Apple’s own service) an easy way to reach customers’ TVs. With some customers bailing from costly cable and satellite TV subscriptions in favor of less-expensive Internet TV services, Comcast, Time Warner, and others have been ramping up their own digital offerings. That’s the tough environment in which Intel is planning to create a new business. But given the set top box that it appears to be beta testing and the new offices, Intel looks to be serious about expanding into the Internet TV world.
