NFL, MLB threaten to pull games over Aereo

Major League Baseball and the National Football League threatened to stop broadcasting games on free broadcast channels if upstart Internet TV company Aereo is not ordered to shut down, according to a brief filed with the Supreme Court.

Brett Sappington, a media analyst for Parks Associates, said the broadcasters are trying to show the potential scope of harm Aereo could cause.

“The broadcast TV industry is bringing everything they can against Aereo,” Sappington said.
