The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear a lawsuit against Aero, a company that uses micro antennas to make broadcast television available over the Internet in several U.S. cities.
Let me explain. This company has tiny, little antennas that are in buildings in I believe eight cities in the United States. The antennas are connected to Internet servers. This service does not, however, cover cable or satellite channels.
You log in to Aero via your computer, smartphone, tablet or whatever mobile device and you pick up their signal and are able to watch the show.
The company likens it to having a pair of rabbit ears on your TV set, but only you are watching the signal as it’s converted and streamed to the Internet.
