On-demand access to the latest videogames through your HD TV has just taken a step closer, following an Intel cash injection into a US firm.

Intel has invested an unspecified amount of money into TransGaming, which is developing a digital distribution service and associated hardware for on-demand delivery of videogames through HD TVs.

TransGaming hopes to have the service – called GameTree.tv - and hardware, most likely a set-top box incorporating an Intel CE Media Processor, commercially available by the second quarter of next year.

Intel’s cash will be used “to accelerate TransGaming's development of the GameTree.tv Service”, the videogames on-demand firm promised. ®
