Intel announced Tuesday it is working on an Internet TV service and set-top box that it hopes to roll out within a year.

Erik Huggers, corporate vice president at Intel Media, announced the unnamed service in Dana Point at a conference sponsored by the website AllThingsD. He said Intel has been working with Apple, Netflix and Google to create its new TV platform.

"For the first time we will deliver a new consumer electronics product under a new brand,” Huggers said, according to AllThingsD.

Huggers said Intel wants the platform to be an all-in-one solution that can play live TV, on-demand shows and also support apps.

"We’re shooting for a service that incorporates literally everything," he said according to AllThingsD. "But Rome wasn’t built in a day. It’ll take time.”

He provided no other details, including pricing.
