Google May Be Aiming To Start An Online TV Service

Google May Jump into the Online TV Game with a YouTube-Based Service

Jason Abbruzzese | May 4, 2016

Another day, another streaming media service.
Google is reportedly readying its entry into the online TV industry with a YouTube service by the name of "Unplugged," which would feature a skinny bundle of TV channels.
Don't get too excited, as the new service is not terribly close to being ready. YouTube has no deals with any of the major TV production companies, according to Bloomberg, which first reported the service.
Google would be a major addition to what is becoming a very crowded field of companies vying to bring TV to consumers directly over the Internet.
