Google debuts Google Pack video download service

Posted on Friday, January 06 2006 @ 0:43 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Google plans to launch Google Pack on Friday - this is a service which will allow consumers to buy videos from major content partners through Google's site.
Under the major upgrade to Google's video-search service, consumers will be able to pay to download and view videos, such as television shows, on their computers from Google content partners such as TV companies, people familiar with the matter say. Google plans to announce partnerships with some major players tomorrow, including CBS Corp. and the National Basketball Association, these people say. By virtue of Google's huge presence online, the move could place Google in competition with other emerging powers in Internet distribution of video such as Apple Computer Inc.
