Now this would be interesting. I am all for more competition in the cable and satellite industry, those of us in rural areas rarely have many options. Google is said to be considering the launch of a pay TV service to combat the cable and satellite providers out there.
Apparently, the search giant is looking to add video and phone service to the crazy fast broadband network it installed in Kansas City, MO and Kansas City, Kansas. Google is said to be talking with some of the largest networks out there. The service would distribute major channels for multiple firms.
The channels would include those from Walt Disney Co, Time Warner, and Discovery Communications. No decisions have been made on if the service will be offered or not according to the WSJ. I would love to see Google compete in the paid TV market.Filed Under: Technology News
