According to Minneapolis St Paul Business Journal…
Aereo Inc., a high-flying startup that lets consumers stream broadcast-TV channels on computers and mobile devices, will enter the Twin Cities market this year.
The New York-based company uses tiny antennas to snag TV broadcasts and distribute programming to its subscribers’ laptops, iPads and Roku boxes. Aereo’s service also incorporates DVR-like features, allowing consumers to save programs for later viewing and pause during episodes.
Not surprisingly they add…
The broadcast TV industry isn’t a big fan of Aereo, and several stations have sued the company.
As a consumer I was happy to hear prices range from $1 a day to $80 per year. I had visions of watching BBC whenever I wanted. But of course they aren’t picking up a ton of cable programs. The mainstay seems to be broadcast channels. Looking at the Aereo website, these are the currently available channels:
- The CW
- MyNetwork TV
- This TV
- Antenna TV
- Bounce TV
- ION Life
- NYC Life
- NYC Gov
- PBS Kids
- HSN 2
- And several Spanish and Asian language channels
