Google wants to get into the cable TV business, according to Sam Schechner and Amir Efrati of The Wall Street Journal. If Google thought Google TV was a nightmare, wait until they try to do this…

That said, good for them. Cable television is basically a monopoly business in this country. One service provider usually owns all the access in any given area and as such, can charge whatever they want. It’s bullshit, and no one has done anything about it for decades. Google is apparently going to try to shake things up from the other side.

And while I think they’ll find it to be a nightmare, it does make some sense. Google is now basically an advertising company. And where is the most money in advertising still? Television.

If they won’t partner with you, kick them in the nuts and steal their business. Or die trying.
