(CNN) - A popular streaming TV service has temporarily shut down in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling against it.

Aereo halted its service late Saturday morning.

The company's founder sent an email to subscribers saying operations have been paused while the company determines its next step.

Subscribers are being refunded their last paid month of service.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court found Aereo violates copyright law by picking up signals of local television stations and retransmitting them over the internet.
