Aereo prompts two networks to consider dropping over-the-air signals

Upstart television streamer Aereo “quite possibly” could bring down broadcast television, according to Fortune magazine. The service, which sells subscription access to broadcast signals via the Internet, has prompted Fox and Spanish-language Univision to actually consider going to an all-cable format.

So far the other networks, including PBS, continue their legal fight to put Aereo out of business. And complicating all this is the emergence of a similar service, Aereokiller, which is waging its own legal battle — and that could end up before the Supreme Court.
