Aereo is coming to 4.5mn Bostonians

US online TV venture Aereo has confirmed that it plans to launch in Boston on May 15th, marking the first new market outside New York City, where it launched in early 2013.

The service – which is currently involved in a bitter legal action with many of the country’s major TV networks – will become available to over 4.5mn consumers across the wider Boston area from May 30th.

CEO and founder Chet Kanojia said: “Aereo is simply the easiest, most convenient way for consumers to access broadcast television online using an antenna.

“Consumers deserve more choice and flexibility in how they experience television and Aereo provides them a high-quality, rationally-priced alternative.”

In Boston, there are 28 over-the-air broadcast channels accessible through Aereo’s antenna/DVR technology, and consumers can also add Bloomberg Television, for a total of 29 channels.
