Aereo Heading to Google Chromecast

AereoThe live TV on the Internet service Aereo will be available on Google Chromecast on May 29.

The move to Chromecast comes as Aereo makes updates for Android apps, allowing users to switch their programming to Chromecast.

Aereo allows Internet users access to live broadcast television and cloud DVR programs on their computers, tablets, and mobile devices. The network has drawn the ire of major broadcast networks, including CBS, Fox, ABC, and NBC, who petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear their case against Aereo.

That case will be heard by the court on April 22. And we’ll be talking about the different scenarios if Aereo wins or loses the case on our first panel at the TVNewser Show in New York City on April 29.

Google, Viacom Settle YouTube Copyright Lawsuit

ViacomA seven-year-old lawsuit between Google and Viacom over YouTube videos has been settled.

As Lost Remote reported in 2007, Google’s YouTube channel was slapped with its first major copyright lawsuit by Viacom, who demanded YouTube remove almost 160,000 unauthorized videos of Viacom content.

“This settlement reflects the growing collaborative dialogue between our two companies on important opportunities, and we look forward to working more closely together,” Google and Viacom said in a joint statement.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed, and comes before an appeals court was set to hear the case next Monday. Viacom originally filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the search engine giant for unauthorized Viacom videos posted between 2005 and 2008, including clips from “The Daily Show” and “South Park.”

SO HS 304Former CNN “Starting Point” anchor Soledad O’Brien is still busy reporting and contributing documentaries for CNN and Al Jazeera America, but a new partnership between her production group and Google has her hoping for expanded storytelling—and conversation.

“Bringing content on the road allows you to take those conversations to different communities and then bring everyone back around online,” O’Brien told Lost Remote in an interview Friday.

Over the last few years anchoring—and now as CEO of Starfish—O’Brien learned how important multi-platform journalism is: “A conversation around ‘Black in America’ was happening on television, but the bulk of the people watching were then communicating with each other on social media,” she said.
