Google Is Launching A TV Service This Year

The company filed an application last week to provide video service to residents of Kansas City, Mo., according to The Wall Street Journal. If approved, the service could launch as soon as a month from now, according to the article, which cites a “media executive currently involved in negotiations to license channels to the service.” Offerings in the video package would include live TV as well as on-demand and online access to TV channels, according to the report, which was based on an earlier article by The New York Post.

The service would compete directly against cable TV providers, and would probably be similar to other IPTV services from phone companies like AT&T (U-Verse) and Verizon (FiOS).
