  1. Aereo may have lost the battle but they certainly aren't ceding defeat just yet. After temporarily pausing operations late last week following an unfavorable ruling from the Supreme Court, the streaming television startup is turning to its fans for support.

    That is the problem with the U.S. today. Companies wanting elected officials voted in that will be favorable to them. How about we elect officials that are fair and honest and do not take a certain company's interest in mind. I know it may never happen, but I can dream can't I?

    The funny thing is Aereo in most of their speeches pretty much explain why this is an illegal move. I am sorry to those who like this because its cheap, but your essentially getting T.V. services through a subscription based service that does not pay the companies that generates the content. Maybe im misunderstanding this but it is not much different in the end from pirating movies, shows, or whatever from the internet.

    Could be wrong but that is the way I interpret this service.

    People are so hilarious talking about this being illegal.

    Over-the-air broadcast is no different than a gift. This is nothing more than deeming profit from a gift as unlawful. Something of which has been taking place for centuries. But since it is corporate thinking they are getting screwed over, we now have to reconsider our life style. Corporate didn't think they were getting screwed, when they broadcasted for free. But how dare someone take this and turn it into a service, of which doesn't exist elsewhere!
