Judge denies Boston TV station’s attempt to shut down Aereo

24 10 2013
Since its founding in 2012, Aereo has been a thorn in the side of traditional television broadcasters. On Tuesday, a federal judge declined a request for an injunction stopping the company’s services in Boston.

Aereo uses thousands of tiny antennas to capture over-the-air broadcasts that are then retransmitted to customers over the Internet. TV stations have consistently argued that this amounts to thievery of their content.

Unfortunately for the stations, Aereo has consistently been victorious in the courts. Back in July 2013, a coalition of New York broadcasters’ request to have their case heard before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals was denied.
