Aereo shuts down just days after court decision

Streaming service Aereo has shut down in the wake of its Supreme Court loss earlier this week. Calling the court’s reversal Wednesday of an earlier lower court decision in favor of Aereo “a massive setback,” CEO Chet Kanojia said the company is ceasing operations. “Our case has been returned to the lower Court. We have decided to pause our operations temporarily as we consult with the court and map out our next steps. You will be able to access your cloud-based antenna and DVR only until 11:30 a.m. ET today,” he said in an email to subscribers Saturday morning. “All of our users will be refunded their last paid month. If you have questions about your account, please email or tweet us @AereoSupport.”
