The biggest U.S. media companies asked the U.S. Supreme Court to rule Aereo Inc., which provides broadcast signals to online viewers, is an illegal operation.

Walt Disney Co., 21st Century Fox Inc., Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, CBS Corp., Univision Communications Inc., the Public Broadcasting Service and station WNET, and Tribune Co.- owned New York station WPIX filed the petition today with the court after litigation in lower courts failed to stop Aereo.
