The U.S. Supreme Court is pulling the plug on the way some Americans are watching television on the internet.
The nation’s highest court says a company known as Aereo has to stop selling broadcasts of live television, because it wasn’t paying for them.
The television networks, cable companies, and a few others sued to make Aereo stop.
Aereo argued it was only offering an advanced antenna service for access to over-the-air TV.
However, the deciding factor was that Aereo’s antennas sold those television signals to subscriber’s desktops, laptops, and smartphones.
Justices ruled 6-3 against Aereo.
That means the average viewer’s choice remains whatever cable or satellite is offereing.
