Aereo Says It Welcomes Supreme Court Action

Aereo said it will not oppose broadcast television companies' petition for the US Supreme Court to rule on the legality of the online service that streams over-the-air programming. "While the law is clear and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and two different federal courts have ruled in favor of Aereo, broadcasters appear determined to keep litigating the same issues against Aereo in every jurisdiction that we enter," Chief Executive Chet Kanojia said in a statement. "We want this resolved on the merits rather than through a wasteful war of attrition."
