If a user is really using an individually assigned antenna in the array as Aereo indicates, it would naturally follow that disabling that single antenna should result in a loss of service to the assigned user and no one else. For that to be the case each antenna must separately feed a receiver to demodulate the signal received by the assigned antenna. It would follow that they will need thousands of receivers because one is required for every user. It would seem that if for example five thousand people are watching a given channel that five thousand receivers must be tuned to the same channel no matter how inefficient this would be. I seriously doubt that any of this is the case. It would follow that the entire premise of their argument is a fiction.
