Aereo

Aereo generated lots of attention from the media world in the run-up to its Supreme Court case this spring. Consumers may have been less interested: Paperwork filed with the U.S. Copyright Office this month indicates that the startup, which let users watch broadcast TV on the Web and mobile devices, ended 2013 with fewer than 80,000 subscribers. Aereo had 77,596 subscribers, spread out among 10 cities, at the end of 2013, according to documents the company has filed with the U.S. Copyright Office, as part of its bid to be classified as a cable company.
