With the dearth of TV providers out there (Time Warner, Comcast, DirecTV, and Dish Network), it seems like we’re stuck picking from the lesser of so many evils. We can agree on that.

We can also all agree that Google is pretty great. Which is why it’s my pleasure to inform everyone (that hasn’t read any business magazines over the past month or so) that Google is getting into the TV and ISP business. They’re giving it a go first in Kansas City, then, hopefully, the rest of the US, by laying down their own fiber optic cables that link straight up to their massive server operation in Iowa.

Those servers will act as a gigantic DVR for users, as well as a conduit for streaming live TV and Internet service. Yay!

With the complacency and shitty customer service provided by the current cartel, it’s very nice to hear that a new, non-compromised company will be stepping in to change the game or at least keep the other guys working for our business.

Plus, it’s just a matter of time before Google lets us download cute, furry puppies right into our houses. Double yay!

Look what you’re doing to Jack Bauer, Time Warner Cable and FOX! He’s whimpering! You’ve made Mr 24 himself whimper. For shaaaaaaame.

FOX said today that due to a back and forth bitchfest with Time Warner Cable, customers may be unable to see FOX programming next year. That includes House, 24, and American Idol (if you care about singing competitions). According to The Hollywood Reporter:

Fox said it has for the past nine months attempted to "negotiate in good faith" with Time Warner Cable, the No. 2 U.S. cable operator, which serves some 14 million customers, and said those talks are ongoing.

But there is a "very likely possibility that Time Warner Cable may choose to no longer carry Fox Broadcasting, Fox Cable and Fox regional sports programing," Fox said.

Time Warner Cable confirmed that the talks are ongoing but said Fox’s current demands "are unreasonable and excessive, especially in this economic climate."

"We hope Fox won’t punish our customers by taking their programing away while we try to reach an agreement," said spokeswoman Maureen Huff.

Hey Time Warner, how about YOU don’t punish your customers by pulling the plug on my House stories that I look forward to every week? Nine months should be long enough for two entities to figure out who pisses better. Come up with a number, reach an agreement, and let’s get this thing done.
