Intel’s revolutionary TV service might not be dead just yet

Intel TV Service Virgin Media

Intel’s potentially revolutionary TV service never saw the light of day, but it is becoming quickly apparent that there are plenty of interested parties that might want to give Intel Media another shot. Bloomberg reports that Liberty Global, the European cable operator which owns Virgin Media, is the latest company in talks to acquire Intel’s Web-based TV service. Bloomberg’s sources did not give much concrete information on the negotiations, even stating that the deal could easily fall apart before any agreements are reached. This report comes just two weeks after AllThingsD was informed that Verizon had also begun a conversation with Intel. Each new suitor brings Intel’s original vision for a revolutionary TV service one step closer to reality, although the final product will likely look notably different in the hands of another company.
