A VIDEO NETWORK THAT RUNS ON PCS

INFO HIGHWAY ALERT: WHILE most putative I-way honchos are experimenting with expensive cable-based systems to provide video-on-demand or interactive television, one trio of partners is planning a system that will run over a high-speed computer and telephone network. AT&T, Intel, and Oracle are close to teaming up to build "the first video-based online service," says one insider. The sources say AT&T will sell and install the network, and Intel and Oracle will provide video- transmission technology. None of the companies will comment, but sources say the system should be ready for testing by April and go on sale in the next year for about $20 per month.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
