DIRECTV joins the Viiv-olution

Kevin C. Tofel

DIRECTV is clearly looking to extend their presence and now they've enlisted in the Intel Viiv army to help. No new products to show just yet, but the vision is forming and it appears to include DIRECTV content pretty much everywhere. The joint effort appears headed towards DIRECTV on PMPs, notebooks, and more, all courtesy of set-top boxes on the Viiv platform later in 2006. Also in the works is a PC tuner for satellite television (yo, it's about time!) so we can push that DIRECTV content on to all of those high-res displays we've been grabbing for our PCs. More is sure to follow, but for now we'll just dream about satellite content on every video device we own.
