Cloud-based DVR accesses free over-the-air TV channels via supported devices
Aereo, a cloud-based DVR company, has announced the upcoming availability of its television services in the Detroit metropolitan area, beginning October 28, 2013. Using web browsers, iOS devices, Android devices, and more, Aereo allows users to access 'over-the-air' television channels via an internet connection, that could once be attained with 'bunny ear' antenna over top of one's TV. Aereo's antenna are located in data centres for serviceable areas, which also include a remote DVR. Users control both with an Internet-connected device, and can view, record, pause, fast-forward and rewind as one would with a cable or satellite DVR.
Aereo is usable within its home coverage area, so long as an Internet connection is available. Aereo service is expanding through out the US, and is presently accessible to consumers in New York City, Boston, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and Salt Lake City. Available as a monthly membership of $8 for 20 hours of DVR space to record shows, or $12 per month for 60 hours and the ability to record two shows at once, both plans include 24/7 access to live television broadcasts in one's home coverage area. New users are offered their first month of service free.
