Google Fiber TV adds over 20 new channels as a signup sweetener

Over twenty new channels have been added to the managed IPTV service that Google offers in Kansas City, including a large number of Fox channels and some National Geographic ones.

Larry Yang, Google Fiber Product Manager, introduces the additions over on the Google Fiber blog by saying that to “sweeten the deal even more” for new customers, Google is adding new channels to the lineup.

The full list of new additions runs as follows: BabyTV, Big Ten Network, Fox Business Network, Fox College Sports Atlantic, Fox College Sports Central, Fox College Sports Pacific, Fox Deportes, Fox Movie Channel, Fox News Channel, Fox Soccer, Fox Soccer Plus, FS Kansas City, Fuel TV, FX, HSN2, KPXEDT2 – Qubo, KPXEDT3 – ION Life, Nat Geo Mundo, Nat Geo WILD, National Geographic Channel, Speed, and Utilisima.

The new TV service is available as part of a double-play package of broadband plus TV, costing US$ 120 per month and offering downstream Internet speeds of an incredible 1 Gbps, plus around 185 linear channels included as standard, along with a new Nexus 7 tablet to control the service, and a DVR with 2TB of storage.

Google launched its Fiber TV service last July at the same time as its new broadband services, and both have already attracted great interest and speculation that they may pave the way for further launches elsewhere in the US at a later date.
