Another big partnership will allow Google to sell ad spots on Verizon FiOS TV.
There seems to be no end to the business opportunities for Google (GOOG) and Verizon (VZ). Not only are the two companies building a strong Android coalition on Verizon’s wireless network (and co-authoring net-neutrality proposals), today Verizon signed up with GoogleTV ads on its FiOS network.
The deal will start bearing fruit at the beginning of 2011 and will be able to reach 35 million households, or almost one-third of all U.S. cable and satellite homes.
Google’s Display business is considered one of its pillars for growth. Deals like this show execution on those growth goals. Google’s stock is up 15 points today within the wider market.
