Diller and Aereo win first round: injunction denied

Aereo, a bold bid to transmit television via broadband using tiny off-site antennas, won a major victory in federal court Wednesday when a judge denied the plaintiffs??? demand for a preliminary injunction blocking the service from allowing timeshifting during a live broadcast. The judge found that Aereo???s method of enabling individuals to control viewing and recording from their PCs or mobile devices was covered by an earlier appellate decision.

Oh noes! Free to air appointment television teeters on the brink.
