Doesn’t make sense…these dopes would be losing their cable broadcasting fees which is their whole point of them complaining about Aereo

To me, a recent Aereo customer, the copyright argument is completely absurd. Several years ago, I chose to “cut the cord” with pay services and paid for and installed a digital antenna on my house to receive local off-air signals. Aereo simply extends that capability to allow me to watch the exact same signal – along with all commercial content – within my local market on my internet connected devices! It makes me much more likely to get my eyes on commercials because I watch more television. It seems to me that the broadcasters should be paying Aereo for bringing more viewers who might not otherwise be watching!!!
