Aereo launches live TV online viewing in NYC on Windows

Would you like to be able to watch live broadcast TV programs online on your Windows PC? Do you also happen to live in New York City? Today, a company called Aereo is offering residents of NYC a way to do just that with newly expanded support of its previously released software.

In a blog post, Aereo says:

We’ve engineered our own way to bring Aereo access to more browsers, including: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 9, Firefox, Safari and Opera. Even better, Aereo is now compatible with these browsers on Mac and Windows personal computers, providing consumers with with even more choice on how and where they use Aereo.

The software was previously released for iOS, along with the Apple TV and Roku set top boxes. Again, this service is just for New York City residents, but Aereo offers people in that city a way to watch 29 local broadcast TV channels online. Aereo has a number of plans that users can subscribe to. There is a free plan that allows people to watch one hour of TV a day on the service, or you can get a day pass for $1 that also offers three hours of DVR storage. The plans go all the way up to $80 a year which offers 40 hours of DVR storage.

Honestly, it's the constant push for apps like these that continue to make me confident in my assertion that the TV tuner card is, and has always been, the wrong approach. Video is better, smoother, and more intelligent as a stream than a signal, and the people who demand things like tuner cards and Windows Media Center have no perspective.

Not everyone has enough bandwidth to stream or bandwidth costs are more expensive that a one off cost of a tuner card.

You realize, by referring only to people with limited resources or lower income, you're only further shrinking and trivializing the HTPC demographic, and indirectly strengthening the argument that they aren't worth doing anything for.

If I could find a service that will let me watch any football (soccer) game for say $15-$20 a month. I'll be a happy camper.

That service will include coverage for EPL, Bundesliga, Laliga, WCup, Serie A. I'll gladly sign and sign up.
