Time Warner Cable (TWC -0.2%) CEO Glenn Britt delivered a sobering thought for media concerns during the company's earnings call (transcript). The exec says if Aereo becomes legal it would have a "significant impact" on the future of transmission fees. The quick uptake is that the development would be good for cable/satellite players (CVC, DTV, CHTR, DISH), but bad for broadcasters (DIS, CBS, CMCSA, AMCX, NWS) (h/t Rich Greenfield BTIG)

    "becomes" legal? It is legal until ruled otherwise, which hasn't happened yet. I guess he means, if vested interests fail to get a judge to thwart innovation that threatens their cash cow.
