Google Fiber (NASDAQ:GOOG) will no longer offer a linear TV product to new customers. The company will continue to provide traditional TV service for current TV customers. Google Fiber introduced its TV service in 2012, but stopped offering it in new deployments in October 2017.

In December, the search giant partnered with YouTube TV, and is now offering fuboTV as well. fuboTV offers more than 35,000 live sporting events each year, as well as TV shows, movies and news. The service also offers cloud DVR and the ability to stream simultaneously on multiple screens.
