With the Supreme Court on Wednesday effectively putting the kibosh on Aereo's streaming service, CEO Chet Kanojia announced that at 11:30 a.m.
Aereo is trying some last-minute moves to rally consumers behind its streaming TV technology just days before it defends its system before the Supreme Court next week.
Should Aereo lose its impending U.S. Supreme Court case, backer Barry Diller believes it’ll be game over for the upstart distributor.
In three weeks, Aereo, the upstart TV service will be fighting for its life before the Supreme Court. But Chet Kanojia, the Aereo’s CEO and founder, isn’t rattled at all.
In a legal brief, Aereo has asked the Supreme Court to reject broadcasters' arguments that its antenna-based Internet streaming service is "a sort of Rube Goldberg device" and just "a clever way to take advantage of existing laws."
