A New FCC Rule Might Change How You Watch TV

"Aereo, as I understand it, receives television signals off the air using antennas, not from a cable system, and Aereo isn't a cable system itself. Free on-air TV, unlike cable, cannot be encrypted, so the order probably has no effect on Aereo," said Mitch Stoltz, staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

The leased set-top box concept is a hindrance to the consumer. "It would be much better if home video devices were more like computers and could be connected to any MVPD service without the need for a leased set-top box," Stoltz said.
