Google To TV Industry: 'Yes, Yes, Cord Cutting Is A Myth; Google TV Is Nothing To Fear'
from the feeling-lucky? dept
That's Google's story, and it's sticking to it.
Of course, this is all really a rather transparent ploy by Google to convince TV/cable execs to back off the demands to block Google TV, by saying that there's nothing to fear. Google TV doesn't make more people ditch their cable TV... it just "enhances it." Uh, yeah, sure. That's not to say that products like Google TV don't enhance cable TV. It could. But the Google folks must know damn well that if they do their job right, Google TV will likely convince more people that it's perfectly fine to cut the cord. Somehow, I doubt that the cable execs fall for Google's pretty words here.
