Google Fiber kills its traditional TV service for new customers

Google Fiber said that it won't offer anymore its popular TV bundles with news, sports, premium, and nearby broadcast channels to new customers. The ISP is instead encouraging subscribers to sign up for online offerings like YouTube TV. YouTube's cord-cutting service, along with new partner fuboTV, can be subscribed to during the sign-up process for Fiber.

The elimination of a traditional TV bundle from Fiber’s lineup comes after Google said it would no longer sell 100Mbps broadband plans to new Fiber customers. Since December, Fiber has only offered gigabit (1,000Mbps) plans in all 18 regions where it has launched to date.

"As of today, Google Fiber will no longer offer a linear TV product to new customers. For our current TV customers, we know you have come to rely on Google Fiber TV and we will continue to provide you with traditional TV service," the company said in a blog post. "And we'll be happy to help everyone explore other options to get their favorite programming the way TV is watched now — over the Internet, with the virtually unlimited choice and control online viewing provides."

Existing Fiber TV customers will be able to continue to use the service. Before the changes, Google had been bundling its TV service, along with Fiber Internet, for about $130, after paying all set-up fees.
