What I'm really wondering about is what that picture is at the top of the NYT article. It seems to be circuit boards with some sort of tiny antennas soldered to them, but if so, they're far too small to be TV antennas.
More likely, they're microwave antenna arrays of some sort. Curious choice to illustrate the article in any case.
I apologize in advance for getting off-topic. We now return you to your regularly scheduled DTVPal coverage
It's not specifically something what Aereo invented to receive OTA signals. It could be just two wires [dipole] antenna.
It's genius clever trick to make whole service legal.
It based on simple paradigm: each Aereo user using own
[remote] antenna to exercise our right to get OTA signal and watch a local channels.
Just a trick for protect from lawsuit. Actually, an attempt, as we see...
