One interesting side effect from the ABC vs. Aereo case is that as the court date for it gets closer media of coverage has become more frequent. As a result, more and more people are finding out that they can get digital TV over-the-air as the concept of how Aereo works is explained.

    Large numbers of Americans getting their TV over the air would cause more financial detriment to broadcasters than an Aereo win. In fact, manufacturers might even begin (once again) building antennas into their TV receivers. The ultimate Smart TV.

    Broadcasters are not hurt by Americans viewing over the air signals, Nielsen numbers, for what they’re worth, include all viewers. The real loser on a successful $8 a month bill for local channels will be the cable and dish providers that are charging $20+ a month for the same service. Cable services are only backing Aereo because they see a way to bypass paying the network affiliates retrans fees and don’t believe that there is a large market for local channels only customers.
