Although Intel’s cable-killing TV service may be dead, that doesn’t mean tech companies are done trying to disrupt the pay TV market just yet. The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon is in talks with several major entertainment companies for a new pay TV service that will offer live programming and directly compete with cable and satellite TV companies. The Journal’s sources say that the new pay TV program is still in its early stages and it’s not yet clear if entertainment companies will be willing to forge an agreement with Amazon given how happy they are with their current relationships with cable providers.
