Aereo, the service that brings over-the-air broadcast television to the internet, has tweaked its service plans. As of today, potential subscribers can no longer choose to use the service for $1 a day. They also can’t try it out for 60 minutes for free. The only monthly options remaining are $8 a month with 20 hours of DVR storage, and $12 a month for 40 hours of DVR storage. If you already happen to pay $12 a month for Aereo, you’ll see your DVR storage bumped up to 60 hours. Aereo still offers an $80 a year plan that includes three additional months of service for free.
Aereo is constantly fighting court battles with television networks that want to see it shut down. They don’t believe Aereo has the right to rebroadcast their signal on the internet without giving a royalty to the networks. So far, the courts have agreed with Aereo. The court’s blessing has allowed Aereo to expand beyond New York City to other areas around Boston, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Aereo plans to make its service available in over 20 new cities in 2013.
