CNN explains the growing service, Aereo…
Aereo lets users live-stream or record programs off basic, over-the-air broadcast channels. Subscribers can view their shows and recordings on mobile devices (right now only the iPad and iPhone are supported), on a Web browser, or on TV through media devices like AppleTV or Roku.

It launched last year in New York City and plans expansion to nearly two dozen cities this year, including Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Houston, and Philadelphia. It’s not free: you can buy a $1 day pass, $8 a month, or pick up a year of the service for $80. That’s assuming it’s around for another year, since the startup’s in a big legal battle with network TV.
