The collaboration will eventually launch a special version of Google Video designed to be accessible through a remote control and on a television screen rather than on a computer with a keyboard.
"With the explosion of digital entertainment choices, consumers will need simple, easy ways to locate the content they want and easily play it when they want," Kevin Corbett, vice president of Intel's digital home group, said in a statement.
Intel officially unveiled the Viiv entertainment platform on Thursday, providing consumers with access to digital media including music and video on a TV.
Intel chief executive Paul Otellini did not mention the collaboration during his keynote presentation on Thursday, but did appear on stage at a Yahoo keynote on Friday during which the portal firm unveiled its Yahoo Go initiative.
The technology is designed to unlock Yahoo content on a television hooked up to a Viiv computer.
