Google Fiber reveals premium TV content

Google has revealed details of the premium content available on its Kansas City high-speed fibre network. Writing in the Google Fiber blog, Larry Yang, Senior Product Manager, Google Fiber announced that both Starz and Showtime would be offered as optional add-on packages.

The service currently comprises some 185 channels, with Yang confirming that Google Fiber would continue to add more favourites over the next few months. “So, for $120, our Gigabit + TV subscribers will get all of these channels, along with a new Nexus 7 tablet (which doubles as your new remote) and ultra fast Gigabit Internet. You’ll also get HD content and a DVR with 2TB of storage that can record up to 8 shows at a time for no extra charge. And remember, for this package we’re waiving the $300 construction fee,” he wrote.

Customers taking the Gigabit + package can add on 17 Starz channels for an additional $10 per month. They can also add on 11 Showtime channels for an additional $10 per month. Popular Hispanic channels will also be available for an additional $5 per month, including Univision Telenovelas, Bandamax, and Telehit.
