Entriq Inside Intel-NBC U Collaboration

Entriq said Monday that it is working with Intel on the NBC VIP Access online service, announced last Thursday (www.multichannel.com/article/CA6376143.html).

Consumers with Intel Viiv technology-based PCs and Centrino mobile-technology-based laptops will be able to download and view NBC Universal programs in high-resolution video.

NBC.com (www.nbc.com) will provide access to series including the entire fall seasons of new shows Heroes and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

Other fare to be included: the season premieres of Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock and Ghost Hunters; the first scenes from Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Battlestar Galactica; The NBC News Special: Bono in Africa; a Galactica special; Ghost Hunters: Best of Season One; Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List; Work Out Webisodes from Bravo’s Web site (www.bravotv.com); and additional programming from NBCSports.com (www.nbcsports.com).

“Entriq's approach gives content companies the security, flexibility, ROI [return on investment] and management tools they need to capitalize on emerging opportunities from the Internet to the PC," said Kevin Corbett, vice president of Intel's digital-home group and general manager of its content-services group, in a prepared statement.
