Diller Pitching Aereo to Senate – 2012-04-22 20:43:00 | Multichannel News

Barry Diller plans to tell Congress that the future of online video is “simply ‘more,'” more content, more choice, more control, and more online access to broadcast TV signals via his new service, Aereo.

According to an advance copy of his testimony, his advice to Congress, in written testimony for a Senate Commerce Committee hearing April 24, “The Emergence of Online Video: Is it the Future?,” about the migration of video online, is “only to keep a careful watch as the marketplace develops.” But he takes for granted that Aereo’s delivery of time-shiftable TV station signals over the Internet to tablets, spart phones and computers is a consumer- and government-friendly service. That is something broadcasters dispute in lawsuits alleging copyright infringement.
