Re: Aereo-like cable, but cheaper

Speaking of sports ... what about all those, "No part of this broadcast may be reproduced without the express written consent of ... [the league and the team]" disclaimers aired at the end of the games that most of us have learned to tune out? Seems like Aero violates that disclaimer. I, for one, would not want to be on their end if the likes of, say, the NFL, MLB, the Yankees, Cowboys and others decide to pursue legal action.

Then again, I don't know much about copyright and broadcast law. So who knows, maybe Aero has, what they believe to be, an airtight defense?

I think the point of the service is lost with your 'antenna' comment; kids don't watch TV on a set anymore.


Research indicates the trend for news and entertainment is through their phones, Ipads etc....and they aren't interested in viewing this info through their PCs anymore -sales are dropping for that bridge device too.

Re: Aereo-like cable, but cheaper

Zombie thread rises from the grave!!!

Well, it's been decided. The Supreme Court has ruled against Aereo in a 6-3 decision. (In favor of the broadcasters: Breyer, Roberts, Kennedy, Ginsburg, Sotomayor, Kagan; in favor of Aereo: Scalia, Thomas, Alito). I'm guessing Aereo is now dead. They may try to restructure their service in some way, but I doubt they'll be successful. If nothing else, it was an interesting legal experiment.

Kind of figured. Arrow will figure how to profit even so.
