This will seem that the already booming YouTube will be even more of a success. Also with major Hollywood talent agencies being contacted by Google, we may see some input from directors and production companies ready to join in with their qualities of production.

With a growing amount of televisions and set top devices containing access to the internet, Google are moving up in the world, with home entertainment and Google TV becoming even more versatile the competition for viewing figures will threaten the already dominating satellite and cable television companies.
