Google to offer TV service over Kansas City fibre network

Thursday 23 February 2012 | 10:21 CET | News
Google applied to provide video services to residents of Kansas City over its planned fibre-optic network there, the Wall Street Journal reports citing state records. Google could launch its TV service as soon as a month or two from now, according to a media executive currently involved in negotiations to license channels to the service. The service would offer subscribers live TV, as well as on-demand and online access to TV channels, similar to services from major cable operators. While the plan for now is restricted to Kansas City, the paper's source said Google had discussed expanding it to other markets that Verizon hasn't entered with its Fios fibre-optic TV service. A Google spokesperson said the company is still considering which services will be offered when it launches the Google Fiber network. Network deployment began earlier this month in the neighbouring cities of Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri.
