Google Fiber, the division of Google parent company Alphabet that provides fiber-to-the-premises service in the U.S., today announced that it will no longer offer traditional TV bundles with news, sports, premium, and local broadcast channels. From a report: Current subscribers to Fiber plans that include TV won’t see their existing service modified or changed, but new customers won’t have the option of signing up for cable content going forward. “As we return our focus to where we started — as a gigabit Internet company — we’re also ready to challenge the status quo, to finally come right out and say it: customers today just don’t need traditional TV,” wrote Fiber in a blog post. “The best TV is already online. And we want to help you watch it, in the ways that work best for your budget and your own viewing preferences.”
