Aereo to Launch in Utah on Aug. 19Says Chicago Will Be Next on Sept. 13 7/22/2013 5:52 AM Eastern
Aereo has announced an Aug. 19 launch date for its expansion to Utah.
It is currently operating in Boston, Atlanta, and New York, with plans to add Chicago Sept. 13 and more markets in the fall.
Aereo uses remote antennas to deliver TV station signals over the Web, but is being sued by broadcasters because it does not pay them, as do cable operators.
Aereo founder/CEO Chet Kanojia said last week the company is still on track to expand to 22 markets by the end of the year.
Broadcasters have tried to get the courts to enjoin the service until a decision is rendered on the legality of the service, but has been denied so far.
