Aereo: The simplest way to record and watch television online, using an individual antenna and DVR in the cloud. No boxes, wires, or cable subscription required.
Aereo has been on the New York tech scene for two years now, but still feels like a fresh concept. The company is in the midst of transforming the landscape of the traditional television market by streaming on-air broadcasting. Despite their ongoing legal dispute with the owners of several broadcast television networks, Aereo has been expanding into new markets across the US. Such an influential technology company based in New York City is exactly the reason why they were featured here, showing the SXSW tech crowd that there are big things to come out of NYC.
