Report: Google talking ad deal with DirecTV

Last week Google announced a deal to sell ads to run on the Dish satellite network. Now comes a report from blog VentureBeat that Google is negotiating a similar agreement with DirecTV, the country's largest satellite broadcaster.

"The DirecTV deal is taking more time than Dish's to close because DirectTV is managing the ownership change announced last last year (when News Corp. said it would sell its ownership stake to Liberty)," VentureBeat reports. "The deal with Google will go through eventually, says a source who wants to remain anonymous." Neither Google nor DirecTV would comment.
