Fox, Univision May Go Subscription to Stop Aereo

GTRacer (234395) writes "In response to Aereo's recent win allowing per-user over-the-air antenna feeds to remote devices, Fox COO Chase Carey said, "We need to be able to be fairly compensated for our content. This is not an ideal path we look to pursue [...]", that path being a switch to a subscription model. Spanish-language stalwart Univison may join Fox, per CEO Haim Saban. Aereo replied, in part, "When broadcasters asked Congress for a free license to digitally broadcast on the public's airwaves, they did so with the promise that they would broadcast in the public interest and convenience, and that they would remain free-to-air. Having a television antenna is every American's right." A switch to a pay-TV subscription model would stymie Aereo but could hurt affiliate stations."
