Chromecast Support Comes To Aereo, Bringing Live TV To Your Big Screen Without Cable

April 10, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

Yet another application is coming along with Chromecast support for our viewing pleasure. Starting at the end of next month on May 29th, Aereo which is a service and app that offers live TV channels of various types including many popular channels will begin the Chromecast compatibility. For those who are always on the hunt for a new way to watch TV and get the TV shows and other live TV content that they crave, Aereo is definitely worth looking into and seeing if it offers you what you’re looking for. Aereo was already a great app to begin with, but now with upcoming Chromecast support, users can break away from the constraints of traditional television and save some money to get a lot of the same great content.

In case you’re wondering, Aereo is quite a bit cheaper than what your cable TV provider might charge you. At a low price of only $8 a month, users of the app can tap into Aereo’s cloud based antennae with DVR, in which you’ll get 20 total hours of DVR use. That’s plenty of recording time depending on what you fill the DVR up with, from 20 one hour long episodes of your favorite show to double that amount of episodes of a half hour sitcom. If you’re a real big TV buff and 20 hours just isn’t enough for you, you can pay an extra $4 for a total of $12 a month, and get 60 total hours of DVR access. So that breaks down to one third more the cost of the starter subscription, but you get three times more the DVR hours. Not only that, but Aereo lets you try before you buy, giving you access free for the first 30 days.

The list of video content coming to your TV just keeps growing and makes Chromecast that much more of a great deal. With the ease of casting content to your TV from any of your android devices, and the price back down to just $30 there has never been a better time to pick one up. Chromecast is also officially now available in other regions as well like the UK so it’s even more available then before. What’s your favorite app to use with Chromecast?
