Re: I am with the broadcasters on this one
said by IowaCowboy:I get local tv streamed on my local network from a Hauppaug Broadway unit attached to an antenna. I don't own a tv set. I can log into that unit remotely from anywhere there is Internet access. Should I also need a retransmission agreement? I see no difference with what Aereo is doing, an antenna and a converter streamed to my computers. I can see where Aereo would be very useful for folks with bad OTA reception. Essentially you are renting an OTA antenna from them. What's the big deal?
Aereo should have to negotiate a retransmission agreement with the broadcasters like every other cable/satellite provider. If they are taking a signal that I could get for free with an antenna and reselling it, then they should have to negotiate a retransmission agreement.
