Intel is quietly working out content deals for a subscription-based streaming service with some of the industry’s top companies, including Time Warner, NBC Universal and Viacom, Bloomberg said on Tuesday. The news follows a previous report from last month saying Intel would introduce a set-top box this year with an on-demand service attached.
Right now, financial terms are being negotiated, according to anonymous sources. The media companies have allegedly signed off on initial plans while final details are still being worked out. For the right price, Intel could offer cord-cutters a dream set-top box—if the content is right, too. Time Warner, NBC and Viacom are the parent companies for channels such as USA, MTV, CNN and VH1. Bloomberg claims Intel is currently in more preliminary discussions with Disney and CBS, too.
