Last week sometime, Google filed for a “video franchise license” in Missouri, right around where they have been offering their Fiber optic internet service. If Google is granted this license, it would allow them to sell Cable TV service in this area. If you would like more details, check out the source link below, but I wanted to share my options on this.
I’m not sure that I would actually sign up for cable TV from Google. I’m not planning on having actual cable TV in the future, since I don’t watch much TV anyway (pretty much just one or two shows a night, and I can watch those online). The only way I’d sign up is if it came bundled with Google’s Internet service (which is only available in Kansas City, and I don’t think there are any plans for it to come to my area soon).
Would you sign up for cable TV from Google if it were offered in your area?
