Aereo’s technology is  now available to more than 19 million people in 29 counties across  the New York City greater metropolitan area, providing consumers increased access  to free-to-air, local broadcast television

 televisonNew York, NY (February 28, 2013) – Aereo, Inc., today  announced that its groundbreaking television technology is now available to the more than 19 million people living in the New York City metropolitan area. The New York City metropolitan region,   commonly referred to as a designated market area (DMA), includes 29 counties across New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Previously, Aereo was only available to residents of New York City’s five boroughs. The expansion into the NYC metropolitan area comes less than two months after the company’s announcement in January of its intention to expand to 22 additional markets in 2013.

 Aereo’s innovative remote (cloud-based) antenna/DVR technology makes watching television simple and user friendly.  Using Aereo’s technology, consumers can pause, rewind and fast-forward any program that they are watching live, or save a program for future viewing. Getting started with Aereo is easy. Simply go online to to create an account. There is no box to install and no wires to connect, so consumers don’t have to worry about installing equipment or waiting for the ‘cable guy.’ No cable subscription is required to use Aereo and membership plans begin at $1/day, $8/month or $80/year.

 Aereo works on ‘smart’ devices from tablets to phones to laptop computers. Aereo is currently supported on iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Chrome, Internet Explorer 9, Firefox, Safari, Opera, AppleTV (via   airplay) and Roku devices.  In the New York City metro area, there are 30 over-the-air broadcast channels available to consumers using Aereo’s technology.  In addition, consumers can also add Bloomberg Television, for a total of 31 channels.

 “Creating more choice and a               competitive marketplace is a good thing for consumers,” said Chet Kanojia, Aereo CEO and Founder. “Today, consumers are tethered to expensive and outdated technology that limits how, when and where they can enjoy their own television programming. Aereo’s technology now lets us provide simplicity, ease of use and rational pricing – three things that have all but disappeared for the consumer. We believe that consumers deserve better and we’re committed to delivering on that promise.”

 Aereo  today   also announced the launch of its first advertising campaign, which debuts   on city billboards, phone kiosks and at key city transit points, including waterways, commuter trains and    PATH  transit hubs this week.          

 Aereo membership is available to consumers residing in              the following  counties in New York State: New York, Bronx, Kings, Queens, Richmond, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Ulster, Sullivan,  Orange, Dutchess; in Connecticut’s     Fairfield County; in  Pennsylvania’s Pike County; and in the following  counties in New Jersey: Bergen, Warren, Union,  Sussex, Somerset, Passaic, Ocean, Morris, Monmouth, Middlesex, Hunterdon, Hudson, and Essex.
