Aereo CEO Chet Kanojia

Aereo's territory is growing even larger with the announcement of a Detroit launch on October 28th. The service — which allows users to stream broadcast television channels online — has been keeping an aggressive expansion schedule in 2013, with most recent support coming to Miami, Houston, and Dallas last month. The growth hasn't been easy for the streaming TV company, which has faced legal pushback from major broadcasters in almost every major metropolitan city. The legal battles haven't been slowing Aereo's growth, with judges often ruling against the television broadcasters' complaints. TV programmers have petitioned the Supreme Court to rule on the legality of Aereo, but experts say that the high court is unlikely to get involved.
