TV streaming site keeps expanding West

Earlier this month, the broadcast networks asked the Supreme Court to consider their case against Aereo, which they say illegally steals their signals. Aereo says it is simply harnessing the power of simple, legal antennae — on a massive scale. It uses millions of tiny antennae to beam broadcast signals to subscribers who pay a few cents each day.
The networks, including ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, and stations including the New York PBS affiliated WNET, told the Supreme Court that Aereo is simply stealing.
Aereo’s technology works on devices from tablets to phones to laptop computers.
