Aereo Announces Plans To Expand to Atlanta

Aereo, the company that give customers access to over-the-air channels online with a cloud based DVR, has announced plans to expand its service to Atlanta beginning June 17.

“We’re grateful and humbled by the continued support we’ve received from consumers for our technology,” said Aereo CEO and founder Chet Kanojia. “The response and enthusiasm from consumers across all of our expansion cities has been phenomenal. It’s clear that consumers want more choice and flexibility in how they watch television and they don’t want to be fenced into expensive, outdated technology.”

Aereo launches tomorrow in Boston.  The service has faced stiff legal challenges from broadcasters and content creators alike for its ability to grab content from over the air antennas and sell it to its customers without paying licensing fees.

Yesterday, the company announced a simplified pricing structure with an $8.00 a month fee for basic service and an upgraded plan with expanded DVR storage for $12.00 a month.
