Barry Diller on Aereo: ‘We’re on the Side of the Angels’

Barry Diller believes Aereo, the streaming TV company that he backs, is on the right side of copyright law, and he plans to aggressively market the service as the company continues its legal battle with broadcasters.

“The ability for a consumer, for an American, to receive broadcast over the air… is their right,” Diller told Bloomberg’s Jon Erlichman (video above). “And we’re just simply a technologically advantaged way of doing it.”

Right now, Aereo is only available in New York but Diller said that the service will be in every major American city in 2013.
