Aereo's online TV service faces off against broadcast networks

Share this story

Aereo, which captures broadcasts of local network TV on "tiny antennas" and streams them live for subscribers, has been sued by owners of networks including Fox, NBC, and PBS for copyright infringement. The service has launched in the NYC metropolitan area (with plans to expand into Boston soon), offering live broadcasts starting at $8 a month, but networks have filed an injunction to stop it from operating while the case is decided.
