Controversial Aereo Service Adds Its First Cable Network WSJ
The online streaming startup Aereo has made a deal to add its first cable network to its lineup. The Wall Street Journal reports that Aereo reached an agreement with Bloomberg TV. (The WSJ is a subscription site and not all readers might be able to access the story.)
Aereo is paying Bloomberg for the content, although the terms weren't disclosed.
The service has created a stir within the TV industry, as Aereo started a Web TV service without getting the prior approval of the broadcasters it's streaming. It's also not paying for the right to carry their signals, and the major broadcast networks have sued Aereo alleging copyright infringement.
