A press release dated January 8 reveals that Aereo has identified the following cities for expansion in 2013: Boston, Miami, Austin, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Denver, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Cleveland, Kansas City, Raleigh-Durham (NC), Salt Lake City, Birmingham (AL), Providence (RI), and Madison (WI).
Aereo launched in New York City last year as a service that allows customers to watch live streaming television over the Internet. The provider is able to do this by taking advantage of a loophole in the legal system. By installing a huge array of tiny antennas across a specific region to capture over-the-air signals, they can then broadcast the feed over the web to local subscribers so long as there are enough antennas to cover the number of members.
Unfortunately, I’m outside of the Pittsburgh DMA. I wonder what the IP geolocation will do with my connection. Sometimes IP geolocation says I’m in the Pittsburgh DMA because that’s where my provider is based. I’ll have to see.
It’s nice to see they’re moving along even though they haven’t made it through court on the lawsuit.
