The major broadcasters have scored a legal victory over FilmOn X, the live TV streaming service formerly known as Aereokiller, with the U.S.┬áDistrict Court for the District of Columbia granting an injunction against the service. FilmOn X has structured its offering after Aereo, which is why the broadcasters may try to use this decision to go after the original. However, as our own Jeff Roberts recently noted, Aereo has been winning in court, and a Supreme Court decision on the matter isn’t expected before 2015.
