Aereo customers not totally out of luck, Antenna firm offering free Antenna’s

Streaming TV service, Aereo, took a blow a few days ago after a Supreme Court ruling voted 6-3 that the company was in violation of broadcasters’ copyright licenses. Aereo operated farms of tiny antennas that beamed the broadcast signal to subscribers laptops, tablets and other devices for a low fee. The company claims they are no different from any other antenna out there and should be able to operate without having to pay the fees that cable and satellite companies have to pay to rebroadcast the content. The argument obviously wasn’t strong enough to convince the Supreme Court to allow it.



There is a little reprieve for at 1,000 of the Aereo subscribers a Missouri-based, Antennas Direct, will be offering up 1,000 free antennas, coaxial cable and mounting to confirmed subscribers of the service.

“To receive your free antenna, simply upload your Aereo billing statement and pay $10.00 for shipping.” 

The first 1,000 people to submit their bill will be shipped, after the $10 shipping fee, a ClearStream 2 ($129.99) complete antenna that has a 50+ mile range. Shipping is stated to take 7-10 business days and the offer is only valid for lower 48 states.

About Stormy Beach

I have been a tech nut for many years. Android has had a special place in my heart since it originally made its debut with the T-Mobile G1. Prior to that I sported a number of windows devices including the T-Mobile Wing. After I was married and we had our 3rd child, is when I really got into phones. Since then my passion for tech and has grown into somewhat of a monster. Always looking for something that I haven't seen a million times everywhere else. Always looking for things that will benefit me, my family and people long term, not just for the few short months they have a certain device. I don't claim to know everything, but one of the best parts of tech is, and always will be, learning as much as possible.
