Aereo, the Internet streaming television service that lost a big Supreme Court case this week, suspended its service Saturday.

In a blog post, CEO Chet Kanojia told customers they would not be access their saved programs after 11:30 a.m. ET “as we consult with the court and map out our next steps.” The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled in favor of broadcasters, including NBC, who said that Aereo was essentially stealing their programming. For $8 a month, Aereo customers could watch TV over the Internet, including mobile devices.
