Google Rumored To Ready HUGE New Project

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - On Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Google is working on a subscription-based cable-TV service, according to "people briefed on [Google's] plans."

Google is currently building Google Fiber, an ultra high-speed broadband network in Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas, and if the Journal's sources are correct, the cable-TV service as well as a phone service will be added to this platform.

Google's Fiber project will bring Kansas City residents a blazing internet connection that is "100 times faster than what most people have access to today." Google hopes that its Fiber project will be up and running by early 2012.

According to the Kansas City Star, the addition of TV packages to the high speed internet service would solve one of analysts' major concerns about Google's broadband plans, namely that people who are used to traditional cable providers' all-inclusive phone, internet, TV plans wouldn't be willing to trade all that for just high speed internet.


If Google were building a service with the likes of Time Warner, Walt Disney, Discovery and other media companies, Mashable writes that Google "could not only sell subscriptions to the pay TV channels, but sell ads on those channels as well. It would also put its video-on-demand services in a sweet spot, perhaps moving many of its video capabilities over to the streaming-video Internet side, rather than the conventional cable TV business model."
