Intel does not only make microprocessors, you know, as the company surely has a research arm that works on clandestine and creative projects in order to further enlarge the company’s bottomline. Well, the latest whispers surrounding Intel point towards an Internet-based TV service that targets consumers, and has also taken steps to promote it among media companies – according to the Wall Street Journal. Intel’s plan to develop a “virtual cable operator” is said to offer media companies’ TV channels through an Internet connection – just make sure it is decent enough to handle streaming without any hiccups, and you are good to go. When contacted, an Intel spokeswoman did not want to comment further on the story. This potential Internet-based TV service might rely on an Intel set-top box that has Intel’s name emblazoned across it, and the service might very well begin before 2012 is over. Would you subscribe to Intel’s TV service? Just how much are you willing to fork out for it?
