This cord-cutting company picks up where Aereo left off


Remember Aereo, the startup that tried to offer over-the-air TV via the internet only to have the Supreme Court shut it down? Well, another company is picking up the OTA dream where Aereo left off.

Mohu, which describes itself as the “cord cutting company,” is launching a product called the AirWave at CES 2017.
