SALT LAKE CITY - Aereo, the Internet-based television service that was ordered shut down in Denver and Utah pending a court battle over copyright law, turned its service off in those areas on Saturday morning.
In an email to Aereo customers, the company’s founder and CEO, Chet Kanojia, apologized and said the service would be shut off at 10 a.m. per the order of U.S. District Court Judge Dale A. Kimball.
"We are very sorry for the effect that this decision has on you and we look forward to presenting our case to the U.S. Supreme Court and ultimately restoring your ability to use Aereo," Kanojia wrote in the email to customers, delivered Friday night. "In the meantime, we are issuing a full refund for the current month to you, our customers in Salt Lake City and Denver. We commit to letting you know as soon as we have more information about the future of Aereo in your market."
