Aereo Continues To Change Game Plan
Technology changing at the speed of light. Well, maybe not that fast.
6/6/2013 Aereo announced the new website platform format. It is a lot easier to navigate through the website and easier to find a show or TV network you are searching for.
Aereo changed the pricing plan too. There are now only two packages available.
$8.00 a month with 20-hours of remote DVR.
$12.00 a month with 40-hours of remote DVR.
Aereo makes it very easy to share on Facebook, Twitter and you can connect a Gmail or Yahoo account to an Aereo account.
That is it for now. The next time Aereo makes significant changes I'll be back to post an update.
Aereo New Website Platform Format
What is Aereo TV?
Aereo TV is new technology that allows you to watch live broadcast television for an affordable price. No new equipement to buy or install, no downloads, no wires, and no clutter.
Chet Kanojia if the Founder and CEO of Aereo TV. He combined television and the Internet to create new technology.
Aereo television is the future of television. Its popularity is growing fast. Aereo continues to expand its area base and it's because consumers want to use the new technology and consumers want affordable television. Cable prices continue to rise and it's partially due to television networks increasing their prices so that forces cable service to raise their prices. Television should not force you to empty out your bank account. There has to come a time when television becomes affordable again.

I enjoy writing about new technology and the opportunity it offers consumers to save money.
Learning how to use new technology has become a hobby of mine. I enjoy sharing what I learn and really enjoy sharing how I save hundreds of dollars a year using new technology that becomes available to consumers. As I learned more about Aereo television and how to use it, I would write articles and record videos to help people understand how the process works and how to navigate throughout the Aereo website platform.
In the videos below I describe in detail how the Aereo TV works, how to use the Aereo TV guide in your Aereo account on an iPad, how Aereo TV gives me more freedom to watch TV and how signing up to the Aereo service has helped me save hundreds of dollars a year. Cable continues to raise its prices and it's because the television networks continue to raise their prices. There has to be an affordable way to watch television again and Aereo created it.
