A new company called Aereo is going to stream OTA broadcast stations for $12 a month launching March 14th, but with a catch.. it will only be available to those in New York City through Aereo’s HTML5-powered website.  Aereo will offer cloud-based DVR service on an internet connected device such as a media streamer, phone, tablet or tv.  Aereo does the streaming via large devices containing tiny, dime-sized TV antennas which are connected to the cloud, where those individual antennas correspond to individual users.  Given the limited accessibility of the service and potential backlash regarding copyright issues, it may be premature to put away your Slingboxes, however, such an idea is intriguing and could grow in time if allowed.
