TheRegister reports that News Corp threaten to take Fox Channel into subscription service if the courts refuses to shut down Aereo. I say do it mate!
Why? The decision on whether to make Fox a subscription service depends on how much News Corp can milk it for profit. Even if Aereo is ruled illegal Fox might still go the way Sky Sport News channel do over here in UK, i.e., becoming a subscription service simply because News Corp can wants to milk its viewers. I pretty much doubt whether Aereo is legal or not weight that much in News Corp calculations.
Finally, as thing stands today, Aereo is NOT a pirate. News Corps President may yet succeed in overturning the court’s decision in appeal, but right now what Aereo is offering is legit because a court says it.
