Dish Anywhere streaming stays alive, despite Fox’s win over Aereo

7 12 2014
A federal appeals court has denied Fox’s bid to immediately shut down the Dish Anywhere streaming platform. Instead, the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit thinks that the broadcaster’s issues with the service are best sorted out through a trial.

Fresh off of its victory over TV startup Aereo, Fox argued that Dish “engages in virtually identical conduct when it streams Fox’s programming to Dish subscribers over the Internet—albeit also in violation of an express contractual prohibition—has repeatedly raised the same defenses as Aereo which have now been rejected by the Supreme Court.”

Fox asked the 9th Circuit to impose a preliminary injunction, one that would put a halt to the service—but the court declined to do so. Fox’s request is part of a broader case that will take far longer to complete.
