Networks Petition Supreme Court in Aereo Fight

aereoMajor television networks including CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox have petitioned the Supreme Court to review their case against streaming television service Aereo, CNET reports.

The rapidly-expanding Aereo, which is now available in more than 25 markets across the country, charges $12 a month to watch live or recorded programming on computers or mobile devices. In April, networks’ efforts to shut down Aereo were dealt a major blow when the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the service could continue to operate. Earlier this week, Aereo scored another legal victory against Boston ABC affiliate WCVB.

As CNET points out, the Supreme Court hears less than one percent of the 10,000 petitions it receives each year.
