Google Considering TV for Google Fiber
Google hasn’t shared many details about Google Fiber, the experimental high-speed Internet service that Google is rolling out in Kansas City, KA (and MO) beyond that it will be available for free to schools first. However, it sounds like Google is looking at competing with the cable companies on more than one front by offering pay TV services. I can’t imagine that Google would be considering a traditional pay TV service, so it will be interesting to see what Google comes up with if they decide to move forward.
Google has reportedly hired cable TV executive Jeremy Stern to lead talks with media companies such as Disney and Time Warner.
A Google representative declined to confirm the pay TV report but said, “We’re still exploring what product offerings will be available when we launch Google Fiber.”
