Anonymous source near the topic told to WSJ, that Google is in talks with satellite-TV provider Dish Network Corp., these talks have been ongoing now for few weeks. Other source told to WSJ that these talks aren’t advanced and might not amount to nothing.
Other source has told that Google is just one of the other companies that Dish has held discussions. Google has no comment on the subject, but Dish Chairman of the Board didn’t want to name Google, but instead told that there’s discussion with company which isn’t in wireless carrier business yet, but wants to be there in the future. Google have now about $45 billion in cash, so even big investments wouldn’t hurt it’s money flow.
