DIRECTV and Intel Bring Connectivity to TV, PC

DIRECTV announces that the DIRECTV Plus HD DVR has been verified with Intel Viiv technology. With this certification, DIRECTV becomes largest supplier of Viiv-verified digital media adapters. DIRECTV customers who have a DIRECTV Plus HD DVR can now access and enjoy their pictures and music on their TVs directly from Intel Viiv technology-based PCs. The DIRECTV Plus HD DVR is the world's first digital set-top box with integrated DMA functionality verified to work with Intel Viiv technology.

The Viiv functionality is already available as a public beta trial to all DIRECTV Plus HD DVR customers. Later this year, DIRECTV plans to enhance the photo and music experience, as well as provide the ability to stream video from Intel Viiv technology-based PCs via DIRECTV Plus HD DVRs.

Delivering the ability to record and view 200 hours of standard definition content or 50 hours of MPEG 4 high-definition programming, the DIRECTV Plus HD DVR receiver verified with Intel Viiv technology enables consumers to access and enjoy new experiences that combine the best of the TV with the best of the PC.
