A few months ago, we reported that Aereo were being sued by several broadcasters. Well, the jury’s out and Aereo has won, for now. U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan said she understood how the service provided by the company, Aereo, may be unfair to broadcasters. But she said the law left her no choice but to reject a request by News Corp.'s Fox and other broadcasters to pull the plug on the company.
For $12 a month, subscribers can rent a mini antenna and have its content streamed to their devices over the internet, satisfying the requirement to have an antenna.
Unfortunately, the hearing was the result of a request for a preliminary injunction. A final ruling will follow, no doubt by many appeals. Aereo’s CEO told the judge that extended litigation would “be the end of the company”, so maybe the deep pockets of the broadcasters will win out in the end.
