Aereo on Thursday announced that it will be integrating Chromecast support for the Android app on May 29. Aereo, a service that allows subscribers to stream broadcast TV channels over the web, has an Android app which is currently in beta. Customers can pay for memberships that start at $8 per month with access to a cloud-based DVR with 20 hours of storage. From the sounds of things, there will not be a way to cast from your browser just yet; Android is the only way to get the Chromecast feature.
“The way people watch and experience television is changing and Google is a pioneer in providing consumers with more choice and flexibility in how they access and experience that media,” said Aereo CEO and founder Chet Kanojia. “We’re excited that Aereo will be Google Cast Ready this May. Consumers deserve more options and alternatives in how they watch television and our team is committed to providing consumers with the best experience possible using Aereo’s innovative cloud technology.”
Aereo is currently available in: New York, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Detroit, Baltimore, Cincinnati, San Antonio, and Austin. Additional cities are expected throughout 2014.
