Aereo streaming TV case heads to Supreme Court

This final note: Streaming video’s where it’s at, right?

The Supreme Court says it’s going to take a case involving a company called Aereo, backed by media mogul Barry Diller.

Aereo’s business model is pretty simple: It takes broadcast TV that anyone can get on their antenna and streams it over the internet to people who pay it $8 a month.

The big networks are none too happy about that, so they sued over copyright and other things.

A decision in the case is expected by June.
