Google's cleared another hurdle in its quest to launch an at-home video service: regulators in Missouri have joined those in Kanasa in accepting Google's applications to provide video programming over the Google Fiber network the company is building out. According to the Kansas City Business Journal, Google's application was accepted by the Kansas Corporation Commission this past Friday; a report from the Kansas City Star earlier this month shows that the Missouri Public Service Commission accepted Google's application back at the beginning of March. With both agreements in place, Google is free to proceed with its planned offering — though the company is still not revealing all of its plans. A Google spokesperson said that Google is still exploring potential offerings and will need these clearances if the company plans to offer video. Of course, with clearance no longer an issue, Google can start planning its offerings in earnest — we should learn more about what the company has planned for Kansas City before long.
