Back in August, Aereo confirmed that it planned to release an Android app, but it didn\’t have an exact launch date just yet. Today, it does. On October 22, Android owners will be able to use the controversial TV streaming service, which is currently available on PC, Mac, and iOS web browsers.
You\’ll need a device running at least Android 4.2, and you\’ll have to be living in one of the regions Aereo covers — currently the New York City, Boston, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Miami, Houston and Dallas regions, with more to come — but if you meet those requirements, you\’ll be able to watch and record live broadcast TV stations right on your Android phone or tablet.
Aereo says the app will launch in a public beta at first, and that Android users will be able to use their devices to connect a Roku box to their Aereo account. As a reminder, Aereo costs $8 per month for streaming and 20GB of cloud DVR storage, or $12 per month for those who want 60GB of DVR space. A one month free trial is available to all new subscribers too.
