Intel (INTC +1.7%) has "signed off on the broad outlines" of its Web TV service with network owners Time Warner (TWX), NBC Universal (CMCSA), and Viacom (VIA), Bloomberg reports, while adding the chip giant isn't "as far along" in talks with other networks. The fact Intel (unlike others) isn't pushing for a la carte subscriptions (though it is promising more service "flexibility") should make it easier to strike deals. RBC's David Bank declares Intel's efforts "great" for content owners. "Intel will have to pay a premium as the new kid on the block."

    I'm interested in other's thoughts about how an INTC led webtv offering could intersect with Google's initiative to recycle TV white space for wireless broadband and their desire to manage the database of available spectrum.
