Google, NFL in Talks 8/22/13
PORTLAND, Ore. - Google has been holding talks with the National Football League, raising speculation that the Internet monolith is seeking new inroads into television.
Other tech companies like Apple are reportedly in talks with cable providers to boost access to blockbuster television shows through their devices.
With Google sitting on a cash pile of $48 billion, the league's Sunday Ticket package is easily within its reach.
The NFL confirmed its meetings with Google Wednesday, but declined to discuss the nature of those talks, as did Google.
