Good article in FastCompany today about the upcoming court case for Aereo
We chat with Chet Kanojia of Aereo, the new TV-where-and-when-you-want-it service that has a few legal troubles. Could Aereo finally disrupt the loathed cable bundle--and TV altogether?
Will be interesting to see how this shakes out and if Barry Dillers/IAC investment in the "legal fees" for this startup was worth it.
If they win this will be the biggest ruling in the TV industry since the Cablevision remote DVR ruling.
As a matter of interest i looked up to see if TVCatchup (UK) and http://www.mytvr.com.au/ (Aus) were still running and it looks like they are.
Anyone want to predict which "cable channel" will be the first one to break ranks and deliver a service directly the the Aereo headend for inclusion in the paid subscription?
