What Channels Will You Get With Google Fiber TV?

By: Zach Walton - July 26, 2012

The big surprise out of today’s Google Fiber announcement was Google Fiber TV. This is a major step for Google as they enter into the world of not only ISP, but TV provider as well. Kansas City residents can sign up for Google Fiber TV plus 1Gbps Internet for a low $120 a month.

A TV service is only as good as the channels it offers though. What can Google Fiber TV subscribers expect to see once the service launches in September? A helpful redditor has posted the entire channel list in a thread on Google Fiber. It’s a pretty impressive list, but there are some pretty big omissions.

Most redditors seem to be disappointing over the lack of AMC and Cartoon Network. Other big channels missing include TNT and FX. It thankfully has The Hub so at least one crisis has been averted.

Of course, this all a work in progress. Google will be adding more channels as they are able to secure more partnerships. I’m sure a few of the channels owned by large ISPs are unwilling to hand things over to Google because they’re directly competing with them. The omission of Cartoon Network, which is owned by Time Warner, supports that scenario.

    There is no way this will be totally successful without ESPN and their family of networks. It is owned by ABC so I don’t understand the problem. Those chanels cover so many football and basketball games(especially college) that without it, sports fans would be forced to use two services 6 months out of the year. I also see the largest cable news network (fox news) is missing and while we are at it, the NFL network. Most fans would pay a premium for the NFL network but the ESPN family of networks is a must.

      It’s not owned by ABC, ESPN ad the others are owned by another BIG Co. that is missing from the list… DISNEY. They own ABC, ESPN and the rest of their multiple channels. An I wouldn’t expect Disney to be missing from the group for to long, it is still just setting up, and they said they didn’t plan to be finished with this first phase till the end of 2013.

    Game of Thrones = HBO = Time Warner Cable. Enough said.

    Great article Zach. For those who live outside US like me, you can access Netflix, Hulu and similar media stations on your Google TV by using UnoTelly or similar tools.
