Comcast Partners With Intel to Deliver Television Anywhere In The Home

Yesterday at CES, Intel officially announced a new partnership with Comcast that will enable customers to view live and on-demand television content on Intel-based devices. This experience is made possible by the Intel® Puma™ 6MG- based XG5 multi-screen video gateway.

The new technology will be based on DLNA Premium Content Guidelines in order to eventually offer live television streaming on Intel-based devices in homes worldwide. There is currently no news on this working remotely, but the idea may be something Intel will eventually pitch to other broadcasters.

Demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013, Intel showed how Xfinity streaming from an XG5 multi-screen video gateway could be transferred to an IP set-top box as well as directly to consumer gadgets. Intel says that the service will be compatible with Intel-based all-in-one PCs, tablets, smartphones and smart TV sets.

"Intel has been a great partner as we work to develop a platform that supports an in-home gateway and client architecture. Intel's powerful silicon platforms and their support for our RDK software initiative have enabled us to quickly develop a flexible platform for the delivery of our cable video services that will give customers the ability to view them on a wide range of consumer devices in the home," Steve Reynolds, senior vice president of Customer Premise Equipment for Comcast commented.
