IN THE NEWS: AEREO GOING OUT OF BUSINESS

NEW YORK (AP) -- An online startup that tried to provide a cheaper alternative to cable TV is going "off the air." Aereo has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The move comes less than five months after the company's business model was gutted by a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. Aereo used to let people watch and record broadcast TV online for $8 on tablets, phones and other mobile devices.

Three days after the ruling Aereo suspended its operations.
