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.
