Google says exodus from cable TV is “not happening”.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2010/11/sSO1h.jpg[/newsimage]Just as a fourth major network has blocked programming from the service, Google TV executives are trying to calm industry fears that consumers are going to leave satellite and cable services in favor of their new web-based model.

“During the third quarter of this year Time Warner, Comcast, and Cablevision lost a combined 455,000 subscribers”

How have the fiber-optic providors, AT&T and Verizon FIOS fared in the same period? Is it possible that a significent number of the supposed cord cutters switch from their cable companies to one of the TELCO providors?

I know that ,several years ago, I switched from Cablevison to FIOS due to the superior internet connectivity, the bundling of my existing land line Verizon number, and the insensitivity of Cablevison to my complaints and requests for additional channel coverage.

I am not saying that Verizon has been perfect in any of these regards, but I have no regrets over having made the switch.

And just where do the people who get their TV from the Internet get their Internet from? I, for one of I’m sure many, get it from the Cable Company. I also pay 3 times as much for HSD than for the (very) basic cable. If I watch last nights CSI on CBS.COM I still see some ads, just not as many and I can watch and pause when I want.

I gotta say, the more Google opens its mouth, the more I realize just how EVIL they are. It is well documented in the media and in the financial reports of publicly traded Cable Co’s that they ARE losing customers.
I would like to requote @bleggs38553,

Googliar !!!
