Aereo never seems to be out of the news these days and the latest installment sees the Supreme Court announce that it will hear the case brought against them by the major U.S. broadcasters. Aereo's service gives internet users access to over-the-air TV and has faced ferocious opposition from the likes of Fox, CBS, and ABC who claim they are illegally distributing their content. The case, ABC, Inc., v. Aereo, Inc, will be heard in April with a decision due around two months later. Aereo is in favor of the hearing, hoping it will settle the matter once and for all.
