A federal district court has granted a preliminary injunction against TV streaming service Aereo, forcing the company to pull the plug on its service in Utah and Colorado, according to a Los Angeles Times report.

The paper reported that judge Dale Kimball granted a request for a preliminary injunction against Aereo made by Fox, the Sinclair Broadcasting Group and the Nexstar Broadcasting Corporation for the entire 10th District, which will force Aereo to shut down in Salt Lake City as well as Denver, and possibly put further expansions into states like Kansas and New Mexico on hold.

Aereo will get its day in front of the Supreme Court in April.
