Last Wednesday, the US Supreme Court ruled that Aereo violates copyright law  by picking up signals of local TV stations and then retransmitting them via the internet to paying subscribers. The ruling returned the case to the lower court.

As a result of the ruling, Aereo founder Chet Kanojia sent an email message to subscribers Saturday morning stating the case would return to the lower court. Aereo also informed subscribers that operations would be suspended temporarily as the company maps out its next steps. The pause was effective 11:30 a.m. EDT Saturday. 

Kanojia stated all subscribers would be refunded their last paid month. 

In a subsequent email to reporters, an Aereo representative emphasized that the pause did not mean the company was shutting down.
