Live TV App Aereo to Support Chromecast on May 29th

Today’s Chromecast support announcement comes from Aereo, the TV startup that lets users watch, record, and pause live video, who have stated that an updated version of its app will land on May 29th featuring HDMI dongle support.

The service is currently available in parts of New York, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Detroit, Baltimore, Cincinnati, San Antonio, and Austin for $8 a month, and the company is looking to further grow during 2014.

Aereo’s CEO and founder spoke on the news saying, “We’re excited that Aereo will be Google Cast Ready this May. Consumers deserve more options and alternatives in how they watch television and our team is committed to providing consumers with the best experience possible using Aereo’s innovative cloud technology.”

Have you tried Aereo? How is it compared to your regular service provider?

  • I can’t express how awesome this is. If you live in an area with Aereo it’s a better investment that Hulu PLUS or Netflix, COMBINED and it is more inexpensive. I watch it on my phone and tablet but being able to send it to my Chromecast means I can all but ditch my HD antenna (we cut the cable 6 years ago) for good. As long as the supreme court doesn’t stop Aereo and national networks don’t go strictly cable like the CEO of CBS threatened, Aereo will change the face of broadcast TV much like Netflix changed the way we watch movies.

    Love Aereo (DFW area)… it was the nail that shut the coffin for us on unplugging since it allows us to get local content and have the DVR capabilities as well.

    So when do they go before the Supreme Court? It seems like they’ve stopped roll out entirely until that happens.

      From their website: That requested injunction has been denied on three separate occasions in this case, once at the federal district court level and twice at the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. The case is now in front of the United States Supreme Court and oral arguments will be heard on April 22, 2014. Today, we filed our response brief, setting forth the basis for our steadfast conviction that Aereo’s cloud-based antenna and DVR technology falls squarely within the law.

        Thanks! I guess we’ll see how long that feature is even around!

          Yeah. I think they will be okay… but you never know. I wish that the networks would just get their own apps to work with chromecast. It would solve their whole problem. They could still get ad sells, and keep up with technology.

            Problem is the networks want to maintain the revenue stream they get from retransmission fees. They don’t want to just give away easy online access to their content without forcing people through a channel that requires a retransmission fee to be paid to them like the cable companies currently do.

            Slingbox does this nicely now and will soon work with chromecast.

          I had the service but I live in Colorado and they pulled it after an injunction. I’m hoping it’ll come back, but I’m not so sure.
