Broadcasters could go to Supreme Court to shut down Aereo

|By:, SA News Editor

Broadcasters could reportedly file a petition to the Supreme Court today to stop Aereo from operating due to copyright violations.

The plaintiffs have suffered a string of legal losses in their attempts to shut Aereo down, the latest coming this week in Massachusetts.

Backed by media mogul Barry Diller and InterActiveCorp (IACI), Aereo streams local-TV signals over the Web for $12 a month using thousands of tiny broadcast antennae.

Those lining up against Aereo in the legal fight include Disney's (DIS) ABC, CBS (CBS), Fox (FOXA) and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC.
