Broadcasters on Friday petitioned the US Supreme Court to hear their suit against Aereo. Aereo is an online service that allows paying members to watch live over-the-air programming. The Second Circuit court decided in favor of Aereo and now broadcasters are taking their fight to the Supreme Court.

Will the Supreme Court hear the case? And what do companies like Aereo mean for the future of broadcasting?
