-- Google's TV Ad experiment reads like a tale of mystery and the macabre. Customer dissatisfaction might have been the "Tell Tale Heart" of Google's now dead and buried TV ad system. Maybe TV networks foresaw that it was "The Masque of the Red Death" of advertising sales. Regardless, Google's "Descent Into the Maelstrom" suffered a predictable end, and this past week the final nails were sunk into their "Oblong Box." In burying their TV effort, they committed the premature burial of their own users. Seems few were "raven" about Google's fledgling TV service... and most all customers and TV networks have quoth, "Nevermore."
We can wax Poe-etic about Google's "Fall of the House of Usher" and how their pendulum swung into the pit of techno-obscurity, but undeniably, their TV experiment joins a growing list of Google's 60-plus failures of recent years.
Tragically, many businesses abandoned by Google's TV experiment are left with TV ads that potentially don't meet current U.S. broadcast specifications, and false notions about how real TV actually works, and how efficient and cost-effective it can be.
Tempted by the allure of self-service, both advertisers and investors may have been lulled into eternal sleep, dreaming of a technological solution to the specter of a non-existent problem. TV advertising can be cheap, fast, and targeted without a greedy, venture-funded middleman getting between them and great deals. As advertisers realize that search ad monopolies are too expensive and mobile ads are just plain annoying, more are returning to traditional TV - the biggest screen with the greatest number of eyeballs.
