Aereo adding Chromecast support to Android app next month

New, 17 comments

Aereo will add Chromecast support to its Android app next month, on May 29th, giving subscribers an easy way to beam television streams over to an actual TV. Aereo, which allows subscribers to stream broadcast TV over the internet, launched on Android last October, but its subscribers have largely had to rely on its website in order to start watching. In addition to a Roku app, support for the Chromecast is one of the first direct routes that Aereo has given its subscribers to play back shows on a TV. Aereo isn't building Chromecast support directly into its website though, so unfortunately, you'll have to use an Android phone to get started, and not just any old web browser.
