Aereo, an online cloud based DVR system for mobile devices, is launching into its newest market on October 28th.
“We’re thrilled to be launching in the Detroit metro area, the birthplace of Motown and the Motor City. Across the country, the message from consumers is clear: they want more choice and flexibility when it comes to how they watch television and they don’t want to be fenced into outdated and cumbersome technology. Aereo’s cloud-based antenna/DVR technology brings the old-fashioned antenna into the 21st Century, making television watching simple again.”
