GameTap Will Support Intel's Viiv

Turner Broadcasting, the parent company of download-and-play service GameTap, has announced the network's plans to support Intel's Viiv technology platform, a "digital home" oriented technology platform from Intel that combines hardware and software to give users an enhanced digital media experience.

GameTap currently offers over 300 titles from more than 20 publishers such as EA and Ubisoft. Subscribers pay $14.95 monthly for access to the games anywhere from their broadband internet connection. According to the announcement, users with Intel Viiv PCs running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 will be able to play games they've downloaded on their television with a variety of wireless USB controllers, including the Xbox 360 controller, as well as the Media Center Edition remote.

"The ability to expand the playground to a large screen and experience
the network in a bigger way brings the consumer into an even more
immersive world of video games and makes playing even more compelling," said GameTap general manager Stuart Snyder.
