NAB 2016

Google’s Alegre Touts Totally Changed TV

“The biggest change is really the elimination of barriers to viewing,” Google President Daniel Alegre told NAB Show attendees while announcing Google Search will carry live TV listings. “It’s never been easier to watch what we want, when we want, wherever we want. A new and better version of TV is rising from the ashes.” If you’re a local broadcaster, he said “traditionally you’ve been constrained by the number of [people who can access your programming] over the air. That constraint no longer exists.”
