Report: TV networks looking to stop Aereokiller

TV networks are looking to stop another another over-the-top TV service -- Aereokiller, according to reports. 

Networks filed an injunction in a California court against the service. Aereokiller, which streams TV station content over the internet comes, from the Alki David. David was the man that behind FilmOn, a similar service in which major networks filed a suit against, and won.

The name of the service is similar to Aereo -- which in large part comes from funding from longtime media executive Barry Diller. Broadcast networks filed suit against Aereo. But earlier this year they lost initial efforts against the service, failing to get approval of  a preliminary injunction. 

News of the injunction against  -- coming from NBC Universal, ABC, CBS and Fox -- was reported by TheWrap.
