Aereo brings broadcast television and cloud-based DVR to your Chromecast


Originally aiming for a May 29th launch, Aereo — a service that can stream live broadcast television to a variety of mobile devices — has finally updated their Android app with Chromecast support. This finally breaks Aereo free from the confines of your tiny smartphone or tablet display, and onto the biggest screen in your home.

But streaming is only half of it. Aereo also allows users to record their favorite TV shows, giving users a cloud-based DVR. While you debate on signing up for Aereo service ($8 a month), the company is currently locked in a brutal Supreme Court legal battle with television broadcasters. Here’s hoping everything works out.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. WTF!? TV for $8 a month? Is this more like a TV service where you watch shows on a timely manner, or is it more like Hulu where you can watch what’s available whenever without the need to record?

    1. It’s… both? Streams broadcast television (the same stuff you can get with an HD tuner) but also gives the added benefit of a cloud DVR.

      1. Nice. I may think about them when I move out on my own. Well… If they’re still around. Do they have Cartoon Network? A mofo needz his Cartoon Network.

        Never mind, I’ll just look them up on my own. Thanks.

        1. Cartoon Network ftw, bitches!

          1. Regular Show. Mmmmmhmmm!!

  2. Enjoy it while you can. The Supremes are due to decide this month.

    1. Hopefully they don’t trounce it. With Time Warner merging with Comcast, and Wide open West sure to follow, watch cable prices get even worse. Still annoyed that I have to pay 5 bucks / month for a mandatory digital converter because Comcast tweaks the signal so you can’t hook it directly to HD TVs without one.

  3. Oh snizzzz… Just in time for the World Cup. Count me in.
