Intel’s ‘OnCue’, A La Carte Online-Streaming TV Service

There a many issues I have with cable/satellite subscriptions, from the high prices for the channel packages that I only watch 20-30% of those channels, to my use of the DVR or other on-demand services like Hulu to watch TV around my daily routine rather than the other way around.  While many alternatives exist for on-demand TV viewing (over-the-air, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, even YouTube, and others), if you regularly watch a select few cable channels, you had to just grin-and-bear-it with a cable/satellite subscription that gives you most of what you don’t care for. However, Intel plans to end that by presenting an option for an a-la-carte TV service, in which you receive a live TV feed and on-demand, catch-up service for only the channels you want and subscribe to. OHMAHGERD!!

Intel plans to launch its OnCue TV service before the end of 2013, and intends on competing with traditional cable and satellite TV services. The OnCue service will also likely feature an on-demand service to allow users to watch new releases without using services like Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, Netflix, or RedBox. Currently, there’s no official or final word yet on what channels/services will be featured at launch, but hopefully the offering will be substantial to compete with cable/satellite TV.

With the way the TV watching habits of people changes, and more people are cutting the cord and relying on online, on-demand services, this is very well the way that content viewing is changing; more focus is on the content rather than the channels.  This may have many cable/satellite providers shaking in their boots (pardon the Texan in me showing) as the idea of people ditching their expensive channel packages in favor of services like what OnCue is offering. I really, REALLY hope that this becomes a reality.

I’LL SEE YOU IN THE FUTURE!
