Intel looking forward to sell OnCue for $500 million

Remember Intel's OnCue? Earlier this year, it was rumored that Intel was working on an Internet TV service that will compete directly with cable companies. But, for some reason, it was never launched.

Now, Bloomberg is reporting that Intel is looking forward to sell OnCue for $500 million. Interested buyers reportedly include Verizon Communications, Samsung Electronics, and Liberty Global. But according to sources, Verizon is already taking the steps in discussing the terms of the TV service with cable companies.

Intel's OnCue proffers pay-TV programming via a high-speed Internet connection. The OnCue system includes servers, set-top boxes, and apps for streaming content. The $500 million selling price should be enough to help the company recover from its loss

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
