As Aereo awaits its day in the Supreme Court over the legality of its streaming television service, CEO Chet Kanojia told Bloomberg TV’s Jon Erlichman there is no backup plan if the Court rules in favor of the broadcasters.
“There is no plan,” Kanojia said. “We believe in our merit and we do think it’s the right thing. Progress is important. The mission of this company was to try to create an open platform, to try to wedge the system open a little bit. And if we don’t succeed in that, despite our best efforts and good law on our side and merits of our case, it would be a tragedy, but it is what it is.” Watch:
A week after the Supreme Court arguments, at the TVNewser Show, we’ll be discussing the future of Aereo. Among our panelists is Tom Taylor, the Assistant Managing Editor of Bloomberg BNA’s United States Law Week, who will be monitoring the arguments.
