OK, if you’ll give me a little slack to speculate here, I’d like to suggest that Comcast will not renew their advertising deal with Google.
The cable giant has just signed a deal with NBC and News Corp. to display their videos on its web properties. In return, Comcast will will distribute its own video content on NBC/News Corp’s planned video portal.
Now, would it make sense for Comcast to make a deal with Google’s competitor, if it had any plans of sticking with Google?
I think not.
