LAS VEGAS, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Intel may give consumers a first look at its rumored cable TV set-top box at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week, tech sites are reporting.

The first working version of the tech giant's set-top box could be shown at Intel's CES event on January 7, an unnamed source at Intel told TechCrunch.

Intel may also be launching its own streaming television service, an industry source familiar with Intel's plans told TechCrunch.

The source was unable to provide a specific date for the launch of the service.

Using a broadband Internet connection, the set-top box would reportedly offer a service bundling certain TV channels and streaming content.

One rumored feature could remove the need for a dedicated DVR, as the service might let people watch any program broadcast over the past month, CNET reported.

Rumors of a television service from Intel first surfaces this past March following a report from The Wall Street Journal.
