From CNET News.com: Google launched its 1 Gigabit per second broadband service in Kansas City today and also unveiled a new interactive TV service called Google Fiber TV in a move it hopes will push the broadband and paid TV industries to deploy faster speed networks at a lower cost.
Google Fiber TV is a service that provides interactive search for TV that allows you to search your DVR as well as content you have on services like Netflix. It will include a DVR with up to 500 hours of storage of shows and movies all in 1080p High Definition. You can also record up to eight TV shows at once.
Google is charging $300 to every home that gets the fiber service for the construction of the fiber link. But the company is waiving that fee for people who sign up initially for the service.
Google is offering three different packages. The Gigabit and Fiber TV service will cost $120 a month and will include 1Gbps connectivity on the upstream as well as downstream. There is no data cap. It also comes with 1 terabyte of Google Drive cloud storage. The TV service will include all the regular broadcast TV channels as well as hundreds of Google Fiber TV channels as well as thousands of TV shows on demand as well as premium movie channels.
