Back in June, I wrote a post about Aereo. Aereo is the company that let consumers DVR and watch live TV online for a wonderful yet brief period of time. I was one of their subscribers and really miss it. I refuse to pay for cable, so I can’t DVR anymore.
From what I can tell, ABC has cut down on what is available to watch online for free, so if I miss something, I’ve really missed it. Since Shonda has me hooked, I’m glued to the TV on Thursday nights. Although, the shows are now on their winter break until January 29th, so my Thursdays just got freed up too.
Anyway, I just received an email from Aereo this morning saying that they have filed for Chapter 11 reorganization. It’s not surprising given their Supreme Court loss this summer and shutting down their service. Looks like they will have to come up with a new business model. It was great while it lasted.
