Google To Introduce A TV Service For Kansas Residents

Google the search engine giant is widening the space of its services, according to Wall Street Journal Google Inc. (GOOG) is now aiming to launch a TV service for the residents of Kansas City.

It could take around a month or two for Google to introduce its special TV service, tells the media personnel currently involved in negotiations to license channels to the service, according to the report. However, the services Google would offer are not unique or different from those other major cable operators operating in the city, for example the report says that the company would offer Live TV, on-demand and online access to TV channels, which is similar to services offered by other operators.

For launching its TV service Google Fiber, a subsidiary of Google, has filed applications in Missouri and Kansas. The ‘service-launching’ application was filed on Friday with both the Kansas Corporation Commission and the Missouri Public Service Commission.

“We’re still exploring what product offerings will be available when we launch Google Fiber,” wrote Jenna Wandres, a spokeswoman of Google, in an email.

Beside introducing TV service, Google earlier this month said that the company had started laying down the cables of fiber-optics for launching its ultra-fast 1 GB/s broadband connection in the same Kansas City, search engine giant further said that their service would be 100 times better than the other internet services that are available in the city today.

Google’s introduction of new services would not only let people of Kansas to watch TV or use high-speed internet but it will also benefit residents by getting them jobs, as one spokesperson told Business Insider that Google also has a ton of job openings for Google Fiber, and those jobs will be managing the service in Kansas City, rather than building it out in new cities.
