LAS VEGAS -- January 7, 2013

INTERNATIONAL CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW -– Intel Corporation today announced a
TV experience that will enable customers to view live and on-demand television
content on Intel-based devices.

Intel is collaborating with Comcast so that customers can enjoy the XFINITY TV
experience on IP set-top boxes, Ultrabook™ devices, Intel-based all-in-one
PCs, tablets and smartphones as well as smart TVs in the home. This experience
is made possible by the Intel® Puma™ 6MG-based XG5 multi-screen video gateway.

“Working closely with service providers like Comcast allows us to bring
exciting new entertainment experiences to tablets, phones, all-in-one PCs and
Ultrabook devices,” said Alan Crouch, Intel vice president and general
manager, PCCG Service Provider Division. “Intel-based multi-screen video
gateways in the home from innovative OEMs like ARRIS allow people to watch
both live TV and on-demand shows whenever they want on their new Intel-based
devices.”

The XG5multi-screen video gateway, which is designed by ARRIS, a leading
global communications technology company, allows any screen in the home to
access high-quality live and on-demand entertainment. This new category of
device provides video, voice and high-speed Internet via MoCA, DECT and Wi-Fi
from one device creating a home network for numerous devices and second
screens. Multi-screen video gateways are emerging devices that centrally
manage pay TV, broadband access to voice as well as new services such as home
security and home management.

“Intel has been a great partner as we work to develop a platform that supports
an in-home gateway and client architecture,” said Steve Reynolds, senior vice
president of Customer Premise Equipment for Comcast. “Intel’s powerful silicon
platforms and their support for our RDK software initiative have enabled us to
quickly develop a flexible platform for the delivery of our cable video
services that will give customers the ability to view them on a wide range of
consumer devices in the home.”

Comcast is working with Intel to develop this technology based on upcoming
enhancements to the DLNA Premium Content Guidelines to deliver its XFINITY TV
experience to Intel-based devices in the home. DLNA is a set of
interoperability guidelines that enable the delivery of enhanced content
services and secure transport of protected digital content to devices around
the home.

The demonstration in Intel’s CES booth (Central Hall, #7252) shows XFINITY TV
streaming from the XG5 multi-screen video gateway to an IP set-top box as well
as directly to an Ultrabook, an all-in-one PC, an Intel-based tablet, a
smartphone and a smart TV.
