Atlanta Goes Aereo

Joins New York, Boston in 22-city expansion

In January, Aereo drew ire from broadcast networks by announcing plans to expand to 22 cities. Atlanta will be Aereo's third market, after New York and Boston, CNET reported.

Aereo will launch in Atlanta on June 17 for preregistered users and June 24 for everyone else. The Atlanta region encompasses 5.3 million potential new customers.

Aereo—which faces ongoing legal battles with broadcast networks like CBS, ABC, NBCUniversal and Fox—allows users to stream television via internet-connected devices. Consumers pay $8 per month to access live TV as well as Aereo's cloud DVR service.

Aereo is set to go live in Boston tomorrow.
