Aereo to release an Android app on October 22nd

New, 27 comments

Aereo is coming to Android. The service — which allows viewers to stream broadcast TV online — will debut its first app ever just under two weeks from now, on October 22nd, inside of the Google Play store. The service is traditionally viewed through a web browser, and while it's made an iOS-specific mobile site, Android viewing hasn't been supported. Aereo says that the app will be in a "public beta" at first, and that it will require Android 4.2 or higher. The service has continued to aggressively expand as traditional broadcasters push back against it in the courts, but Aereo's debut on Android is just another sign that it's moving quickly toward making its service widely and conveniently available — something broadcasters won't be happy about.
