TV-over-Internet service Aereo to come to Android

Oct 10, 2013

Aereo, a service that delivers broadcast television stations over the Internet, will come to Android devices on Oct. 22.

The service started on iPhones and other Apple devices along with the Roku streaming box before expanding to personal computers. The company says that the Android offering took longer because of the many versions of Android available. Device makers are able to customize the version made by Google. Aereo says its Android app will run on phones and tablets with Android 4.2 or higher. It will be in a beta test mode at first.

Aereo is currently available in New York, Boston, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Miami, Houston and Dallas. Service starts at $8 a month.

Aereo has won key court rulings against broadcasters who claim its service infringes copyrights.
