Intel In Talks to Hand Over Web TV Project to Verizon - Peter Kafka and Arik Hesseldahl - Media - AllThingsD

Still waiting to see which vendor can "crack the code" on Internet + TV
"If Intel does end up getting out of TV, it will mark the end of an odd chapter in the company’s history. In January 2011, Intel hired Erik Huggers, the executive who had headed up Web video for the BBC, and Huggers began working on a plan to create an Intel-branded pay TV service, using an Intel-built set top box.
That was a big departure for a company that doesn’t have a media background or sell anything directly to consumers. And lots of tech companies that do deal with media and consumers, from Apple to Google to Sony, have considered pay TV over the Web but have yet to figure it out."
