"Three days after the Supreme Court ruled that Aereo had violated copyright laws by capturing broadcast signals on miniature antennas and transmitting them to subscribers for a fee, the company suspended its service," reports The New York Times.
The story reports: "Aereo said that the service would not be available after 11:30 a.m. on Saturday [June 28, 2014], and that it would give users a refund for their last paid month. The company had fewer than 500,000 subscribers in about a dozen metropolitan areas.
"Customers paid $8 to $12 a month to rent one of Aereo’s dime-size antennas that captured over-the-air television signals. They then could stream and record programs from major broadcasters using their mobile phones, tablets, laptops and Internet-connected televisions."
That Times notes that on Saturday Aereo's CEO, Chet Kanojia, "said Aereo’s journey was 'far from done.' A spokeswoman underscored that the company was not shutting down, merely temporarily stopping its service.
Aereo did not outline how or when the company would come back.
