Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:44 am

Chip-maker Intel Corp. launched its Viiv entertainment PC platform Thursday and announced a slew of deals with entertainment and other tech companies to provide content for the new systems.

Viiv PC owners will be able to watch video that’s stored in Google Inc.’s video service, high-definition highlights from NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics and classic TV shows from America Online. In all, Intel has signed dozens of content deals.

Viiv computers will be capable of replacing the array of standalone boxes that surround the television - such as a digital video recorder, DVD player or cable box. Intel also says it’s working to ensure a Viiv PC works seamlessly with other equipment.
