TV-over-Internet service Aereo will expand to Utah

Jul 22, 2013

(AP)—Aereo, which provides broadcast television over the Internet for $8 a month, says it will expand to Utah next month.

The service started in New York last year and expanded to Boston and Atlanta this spring. It already has announced plans to expand to Chicago in September.

Service in Utah will begin Aug. 19 and will be available statewide. It will come with several over-the-air stations, plus the financial channel Bloomberg TV.

Aereo is positioning itself as a cheaper alternative to cable or satellite TV subscriptions. It converts into computer data and sends them over the Internet to subscribers' computers and mobile devices. Subscribers can watch channels live or record them with an Internet-based .

Aereo has won key court rulings in broadcasters' copyright-infringement lawsuit.

I am curious - has any one had experience with this service? Obviously you still need to keep your internet service - and just drop the T.V. portion of your cable. This threatens the business model of companys like comcast - as their revenue stream is potentially cut in half. Are they pushing back by making you pay proportionately more if you just keep your internet? My cable bill has risen dramatically over the past few years - would love to save some $'s by dropping the T.V. portion.
