Upstart streaming TV service Aereo will launch a native application optimized for Google's Android sometime in September, CEO Chet Kanojia told International Business Times.
Almost a decade after Qualcomm's MediaFlo, Crown Castle's Modeo and Aloha Partners' Hiwire first tested the mobile TV game, with less-than-stellar results, a new crop of startups are rolling out essentially the exact same technology with hopes for a very different outcome.
Consumers are tuning in to the possibilities of mobile TV. Half of U.S. consumers would consider viewing programs on their smartphones and tablets according to a new survey conducted by Mobile Content Venture, the broadcaster alliance behind the forthcoming Dyle mobile TV effort.
A federal judge ruled Wednesday that startup Aereo can continue streaming live television programming to smartphones and tablets, despite broadcasters' claims that the service violates copyright law.
