Aereo has unveiled new pricing plans for its streaming television services in preparation for its expansion beyond New York City. This move comes less than a month after a judge refused to grant an injunction filed by several major TV content providers that would shut down the service. Aereo previously offered a flat rate of $12 per month, but now has a variety of new tiers — including a "try for free" option that allows one hour of continuous streaming for free every day, without the hassle of putting your credit card on file. The site also has a $1 per day option in case you're only interested in watching, say, the Super Bowl, and comes with three hours of DVR storage, accessible for ten days.
If you're in it for the longer haul, you can spend $8 per month with 20 hours of DVR storage, or $12 per month for twice the storage — both options offer a second month for free. Aereo also provides a year-long subscription for $80, which, akin to other TV packages, ends up being less expensive than paying a la carte. The service is currently only available in New York City and its legal battles are likely far from over, but the company still has ambitious plans to expand to most major markets by next year.
