Online Television in the Balance: The Courts and Aereo

This webinar is now offered in an archived format

The television industry is gearing up for the mother of all legal fights, where the highest court in the land may handdown the final word on streaming service Aereo. A ruling—if the Supremes agree to hear the case—will transform the TV landscape. If they opt not to, Aereo will still roll into new markets, battling broadcasters in smaller courts. Its imitators abound, swelling an army of streaming services on tablets and phones. Smart TVs make them a snap to watch at home.

Join us as a panel of legal, Wall Street and industry experts help you navigate a seriously complex time.

  • Hear how a Supreme Court verdict on Aereo could impact business. What happens if the high court declines to hear the case?
  • Learn which disruptive technology, or combination, from Aereo and Hopper to Netflix and Amazon, poses the greatest threat to traditional television business models and why. Are there opportunities amidst the onslaught?
  • Explore a range of industry responses—from legal action to M&A to TV Everywhere, online advertising and savvy use of social media. What’s working best to slow the erosion of viewers while shifting the business into a new era
