Google may be taking on Comcast and Time-Warner as a major competitor in the cable television business, according to recently published reports in The Wall Street Journal.

Google is reported to be launching a new high speed Internet service in Kansas City, and contemplating an expansion of the service to include television and telephone services. The move could represent a major challenge to the cable TV industry in the U.S. and elsewhere — especially given Google’s deep pockets and ability to thus undercut pricing for sustained periods of time.

The news comes at a busy time for Google, which appears to be increasingly focused on adding professional, Hollywood style content to YouTube with deals with Disney and others in the works, says an article on Reuters.
