Intel's Internet TV Service On Sale For $500 million: Bloomberg
Intel is trying to sell its Internet television
service for $500 million and wants to complete a deal by
year-end, Bloomberg reported on Monday.
Verizon Communications, which has shown interest
in Intel's OnCue TV service, has spoken with content providers
about a streaming television service, Bloomberg also said,
citing unnamed sources.
Intel did not provide any comment.
OnCue was officially launched in February, but Intel did not
manage to strike deals with major programmers.
The chipmaker's new CEO, Brian Krzanich decided Intel could not
afford the distraction and expense, putting the service on
sale. According toBloomberg, the world's largest chipmaker
hopes to secure a sale by the end of the year, and potential
suitors also include Samsung and Liberty Global.
