Best way to deal with it, is simply cut the cord, stop paying those re-transmission fees, and put up an antenna instead. Cable/Satellite is quickly pricing itself out of business so this is an issue that will take care of itself one way or the other. It's just like what happened to land line telephone service. When was the last time you ran into someone with one of those that wasn't VoIP?
Of course it's not the fault of the Supreme Ct. Instead, blame the congress & president who make these laws in the first place.
I didn't get angry and throwing chairs and slamming doors. I did get mad calmly.
Yes Congress are the ones create the laws in the US and POTUS signs those into law. But here in my area the only strongest signal I can get OTA is PBS from SCETV while most of my Greenville/Spartanburg, SC stations and adjacent Augusta, GA ones are moderate signals, most weak signals from Columbia, SC, off-and-on from some Charlotte, NC stations.
I wish corporate greed and corruption by the NAB should end, but won't happen anytime soon. As I say the SCOTUS ruling was a travesty for America! The End of An Era!
I don't like to hear the words "There's nothing you can do" and I wont accept this BS nonsense. This is supposed to be America, not Red China for God's sake. I love freedom, but hate communism. SCOTUS were like commies during this dreadful ruling earlier today. Same story for CBS' Les Moonves, other broadcasters, Gordon Smith and Dennis Wharton of the NAB as well!
I think the NAB hates innovation and they want to live in the 20th century past! We need reform on Retransmission Consent and 21st century rules IMHO. I know Diane Sawyer stepping down as anchor of ABC World News after 5 years which was another shake up today besides Eli Wallach's passing too (he lived a long life).
June 25, 2014 aka Black Wednesday or in other words The Day Aereo Died
. As I say before an iconic innovation was loosing to broadcast greed thanks to SCOTUS' ruling and the corrupted nemesis the NAB got away with it. Same thing like Susan Lucci said to Brian Frons on her memoir after All My Children
got cancelled three years ago. SCOTUS justices, Les Moonves and other broadcasters, Gordon Smith and Dennis Wharton of The NAB were like the final combination of ignorance and arrogance. RIP Aereo (2012-2014)
