Detailed by the International Business Times, Aereo is working on an Android application that will allow Aereo subscribers to stream live network broadcasting to their Android smartphone or tablet. According to Aereo CEO Chet Kanojia, the original plan was to release the Android application last summer, but that target release window simply didn’t happen. Hypothetically, subscribers in New York will be able to tune into networks like CBS, FOX, NBC, ABC, Telemundo, ION and the CW with Android devices while on the go. Apple iPhone and iPad users have already been able to take advantage of Aereo through mobile Safari within iOS.

Aereo network broadcast on mobileAt the moment, Aereo service is available in New York City, Atlanta, Boston and Salt Lake City. Aereo plans to expand into 19 new markets which are mostly located on the East Coast, the South and the Midwest areas of the country.

Anyone interested in subscribing to the service can visit the coverage page in order to register for an advanced invitation to the service. Beyond Apple’s mobile devices, users can also watch video on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers as well as the Roku set-top box through an Aereo private channel.

Regarding membership, the standard subscription starts at $8 per month and offers up 20 hours of DVR space to record shows for later viewing. After bumping up to the $12-per-month plan, Aereo subscribers have access to 60 hours of DVR recording time as well as multiple tuners to record two shows at the same time. Aereo claims that the user is viewing feeds from a specific antenna assigned to the subscriber, hence there’s no copyright infringement of the broadcast signals. While the legality of the service continues to be questioned in court by the major networks, Time Warner Cable recently announced the company may recommend viewers in New York City invest in an Aereo subscription during the CBS blackout.
