Aereo Goes To Washington
"If today's kids become accustomed to Internet-based TV, tomorrow's households will turn to the Internet rather than cable or satellite."

As it goes, the U.S. Supreme Court decided last week that it will indeed hear the case against Aereo, the oft-discussed tiny-antenna service that streams over-the-air channels to televisions via the Internet.
