ATVA Statement on Aereo Case

Washington, D.C. April 22, 2014– Following today’s oral arguments in front of the Supreme Court on American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. v. Aereo, the American Television Alliance issued the following statement:

Today, broadcasters continued their ongoing fight against television innovation and video reform. They’re committed to an antiquated system that delivers massive profits, including $25 billion from pay-TV customers over the next five years. Until Congress creates video rules that reflect the 21st Century, viewers will suffer blackouts and ever-higher fees. Cases like Aereo will arise as long as broadcasters obstruct the future.
