27 Sep 2013 | Rasmus Larsen |

In February, Intel revealed that they are working hard on a <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1360768381><b>TV box and a TV service</b></a>. The plan was to launch before the end of 2013, but the project could be scrapped completely. Intel is currently looking for partners and has contacted Samsung and Amazon, according to AllThingsD.<br /><br /><h3> Intel's TV plans hanging by a thread</h3>Intel’s plans are extensive. They will not only make a TV box with a modern user interface, but also create a TV service with access to popular TV channels. Intel will distribute the TV channels over the internet and add a range of features. One of the features that Intel has mentioned is a cloud DVR locker, where you can store recordings or access any TV program that has aired during the last three days.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/allthingsdintel-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/allthingsdintel-1.jpg" alt="Intel at All Things D" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>In February, Erik Huggers, Intel (right) revealed that Intel is hard at work at developing an Internet TV service and TV box, photo: Asa Mathat</i></p><br />Or that <i>was</I> the plan, but the project could be scrapped unless Intel finds a strategic partner. Intel is still negotiating with TV rights owners, but negotiations seem to have been more challenging than Intel had anticipated. Intel is therefore currently looking for a strategic partner to help them fund and distribute the TV service. They have reportedly approached Samsung and Amazon.<br /><br />Intel is said to have more than 300 employees working on the project, including former employees from Apple, Netflix, and Google. 3,000 Intel employees are said to be testing the service with a prototype box, and Intel has already decided on a name; OnCue. The OnCue brand has been registered in USA, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.<br /><br />Besides Intel, other big names such as Google, Apple, and Sony are also reportedly working on online TV services, but that is just rumors for now.<br /><br />- <i>Source: <a href=http://allthingsd.com/20130926/intel-looking-for-help-from-amazon-or-samsung-to-keep-its-web-tv-project-alive/ target=_Blank>AllThingsD</a></i>
