Intel Insider 1080p Movie Service, WiDi 2.0 Coming to Core 2011 Processors

Intel is planning to launch a full HD 1080p streaming video service called “Insider” in the first quarter of 2011. Unlike iTunes or really anything else out there, Intel’s Insider will allow those with Core 2011-powered laptops or desktops to purchase or rent the latest movies in full HD — yes, good ol’ 1080p.

Deals with Warner Bros and CinemaNow have already been arranged, and it’s expected that a very broad library of movies will be available at launch — and if that wasn’t exciting enough, Intel’s streaming movies will be made available at the same time as Blu-ray and DVD releases!

Intel Insider 1080p for Core 2011

Naturally, Intel doesn’t only want you to watch those brand spankin’ new 1080p movies on your laptop screen — it’s pushing WiDi in a big way, and the second generation, which’ll be baked into new Core 2011 systems, will support 1080p streaming and will eventually enable streaming of protected content, including DVDs and Blu-ray discs. WiDi 2.0, as they’re calling it, will work a lot like the original version we like so much and allows you to extend your desktop to an HD monitor, but unfortunately, it’ll require a new HDTV receiver to enable the full HD capability and it still has that two second lag.
