Expansion made possible by $38M cash infusion

Live TV streaming service Aereo is planning to expand to 22 more US cities this year, the company has announced via its website. The full list includes Austin, Boston, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Washington, Baltimore, Detroit, Denver, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Cleveland, Kansas City, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City, Birmingham, Providence, and Madison (WI). The expansion appears to be possible because of $38 million in second-round venture capital funding. Several firms and "select individuals" are mentioned as sources for the money.

To date, Aereo has only been available in New York City. Aereo attempts to provide a legal way of watching live TV over the Internet through small antennas placed in data centers, which pick up broadcast TV for streaming to Aereo subscribers. The service typically costs $8 per month, and can push TV to web browsers like Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, as well as Roku set-tops and the iPad and iPhone. The Apple TV is supported indirectly via AirPlay.
