“Accessing free, over-the-air broadcast television should be simple and easy for the public. Enhancing and supporting public access to local broadcast signals is important to keeping local broadcasters vibrant and the public informed about what’s happening in the world and community around them. By temporarily expanding our Try for Free access to accommodate the debate time frame, we’re providing the public with another avenue to more fully engage in this year’s election process. We hope people continue to take advantage of this expanded access and watch this Thursday’s debate.” – Aereo CEO and Founder, Chet Kanojia
The Aereo Team is doing it again.
On the heels of last week’s successful expanded Try for Free access for the Presidential Debate, Aereo is announcing today that we will again expand our Try for Free feature for Thursday’s Vice Presidential Debate showdown between Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan. That means New Yorkers will be able to watch the debate, live on broadcast TV, on compatible Internet-connected devices with Aereo.
The debate kicks off at 9:00pm EST and Aereo will temporarily expand Try for Free access until 11:00pm to accommodate the debate time frame. The debate will be aired by all of the major over-the-air broadcasters.
Our Try for Free feature is simple to use. Visit Aereo.com, create a login and password and, subject to capacity, consumers can begin using Aereo Try For Free immediately on compatible devices. There is no credit card to enter, but users must be located within New York City. Data charges may apply, so please check with your provider.
