Episode Teaser Image
Somewhere in Brooklyn, a company called Aereo has leased several rooms. In these rooms, the company intends to place tons and tons of little tiny antennas, each no bigger than a dime and each assigned to a customer. So instead of trying to grab all these signals with one giant antenna and streaming them out to tens of thousands of people, there are thousands of antennas and each one is like someone's own personal antenna. Problem is, broadcasters are suing Aereo before it launches.
