Verizon preparing to launch "OnCue" IPTV service

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 17 Apr 2016 19:22

Verizon preparing to launch "OnCue" IPTV service Two years ago, Verizon acquired what was left of Intel's failed OnCue IPTV service and it appears they are now on the verge of launching a set-top box built on Intel's foundations.
The telecom giant has filed documents with the U.S. FCC to get approval for the box, and the documents specifically mention OnCue, and the codename for their set-top, "Mallard."

As has been reported in the past, the new device will offer pay-TV services and a brand new interface unlike that seen in Verizon's current Fios service. The set-top box will also give access to online video services although it is unclear if that includes the big services like Netflix and Hulu.

Sources claim Verizon has mandated its team to ship the box and the service by the end of the year, with testing for some subscribers starting over the summer.
