Intel will reportedly debut a new Cable TV Set Top Box at CES on January 7th, according to a TechCrunch source.

An inside source at Intel working on the project has told me that a working version (and notably, the first iteration – it will be an evolving product) of the set top box will be finished by and for CES. One feature we heard about could be a real game changer for the digital video recorder experience. Supposedly Intel’s technology could allow people to recall and watch any programming aired in the last month on the channels they subscribe to. That means no worrying about scheduling what to record. You could pull up a new show from last night that friends raved about, a sports game you forgot about, or all the recent reruns of a favorite cartoon.

Intel is said to be working on the box as part of its plans for a subscription TV service that would combine both traditional channels and streaming content such as Redbox.

The battleground for TV appears to be heating up this year with Samsung showcasing a new television at CES that will feature on-demand movies, apps, and photos. Apple has also been rumored to be working on a revolutionary television but little is known about the company's plans.
