Intel and Hughes Network Systems have announced that they are going to collaborate on digital satellite set top boxes to bring interactive TV to homes.
The first of these products will be the AOL TV satellite receiver which will support AOL TV as well as 200-plus channels of digital TV through DirectTV. Intel is also licensing HNS's DirecPC, a broadband satellite Internet service, to integrate into other products.
This teaming comes just as America Online announced that it is making a $1.5 billion investment in Hughes Electronics, which owns HNS, to push AOL TV and get access to high speed Internet access technology via satellite. (see earlier story)
