10:28 EDTDIS, NXST, CMCSA, MEG, SBGI, FOXA, GTN, CBSBroadcasters jump after Supreme Court rules against Aereo
The Supreme court ruled 6-3 in favor of television network owners and against Aereo, which sells a service that allows its subscribers to watch television programs over the Internet at about the same time as the programs are broadcast over the air. WHAT'S NEW: Television broadcasters that own the copyrights in many of the programs that Aereo streams sued the service for copyright infringement. A district court previously denied an injunction against Aereo that was sought by television networks and the Second Circuit affirmed, but the Supreme Court ruled that "Because Aereoís activities are substantially similar to those of the CATV companies that Congress amended the Act to reach, Aereo is not simply an equipment provider." PRICE ACTION: Following the Supreme Court ruling against Aereo and in favor of broadcast TV network owners, shares of CBS (CBS) are up more than 5%. Shares of Disney (DIS), which owns ABC Network, are up 1.4%, 21st Century Fox (FOXA), the owner of Fox, is up 1.6% and Comcast (CMCSA), which owns NBC, is up 1%. Meanwhile, owners of television stations are up as well, with Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBGI) up 14%, Nexstar (NXST) up 12%, Media General (MEG) up 6% and Gray Television (GTN) up 4.6%.
