Google Fiber’s latest FCC filing is Comcast’s nightmare come to life

What’s every incumbent ISP’s worst nightmare? If we had to guess, it looks something like the filing that Google just made with the Federal Communications Commission.

Google says TV studios are charging Google Fiber ridiculous prices for their shows

Cord cutting may be the future but Google Fiber unfortunately still has to deal with the present, and that means it has to shell out cash to TV studios for the rights to deliver their shows over its pay TV service. Per The Washington Post, Google Fiber boss Milo Medin said on Monday that paying for TV programs is the biggest impediment to Google Fiber spreading further, especially because studios charge significantly more for the rights to offer their shows than they charge big cable companies like Comcast and Time Warner Cable.
