#AereoTip Don’t Suffer From Buffering

The first rule of streaming: check your Internet speed. Because when it comes to recording and watching TV online, getting the best picture quality with the lowest amount of buffering is key. But everyone’s Internet connection is different. That’s why we give you 4 video quality options to choose from.

Use the ‘Check Speed’ function to see which video quality setting best suits your situation. Depending on the strength of your Internet connection, toggling between the Low, Medium, and High options will help improve the quality of your stream.

If you’re unsure which is best, just select the ‘Auto’ option and we’ll optimize for you. If you have any questions, visit our Support page for advice.

Record Now. Watch Later.

At Aereo, we’re all about giving you more choices. That’s why we put your DVR in the cloud, so you can set it to record the shows you want from your phone, tablet, desktop, or any other compatible device. And we made it easy – 3-step easy, in fact.

How to Record Live for Later:

Step 1. Select the show you want to record from the Aereo guide. 

Step 2. Choose the “Record” option on your show.

 

Step 3. Set the options for your recording. You have a whole bunch of choices for how you record: just this once, every new episode, or all episodes.

And that’s it! We wanted to make recording the shows you love easy, because what good is a DVR if you’re not able to control it on the go? For more tips on how to manage your recordings and other Aereo features, check out our Support page.

Standing up for Innovation, Progress, and Technology, Continued

Last December, we agreed to the broadcasters’ request to seek review of their claims by the
United States Supreme Court. We made that decision because we wanted their claims against Aereo resolved on their merits, rather than through a wasteful war of attrition.

On April 22, Aereo will present our case to the United States Supreme Court. We remain steadfast in our conviction that Aereo’s cloud-based antenna and DVR technology falls squarely within the law. We have every hope and confidence that the Court will validate and preserve a consumer’s right to access local over-the-air television using an individual antenna, make a personal recording with a DVR, and watch that recording on a device of their choice.

Much has been written about Aereo and its technology, as well as the Supreme Court case. Many of you have reached out to us asking for more information and ways to help the company.

Today, we are launching a website, that provides you with some basic information about Aereo and the legal claims before the Supreme Court.

At ProtectMyAntenna.org, you’ll find court briefs, amicus briefs and court decisions related to the Supreme Court case. You can also sign up for updates to stay in touch with the Aereo team.

What is at stake in this case is much bigger than Aereo. We believe that consumers are entitled to use a modern, cloud-based, version of an antenna and DVR and that consumers should not be constrained to 1950’s era technology to watch free-to-air broadcast television. The broadcasters’ positions in this case, if sustained, would impair cloud innovation and threaten the myriad benefits to individuals, companies, and the economy at large of the advances in cloud computing and cloud storage. Several amicus briefs including those from CCIA and Mozilla, Public Knowledge, the Consumer Electronics Association and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, directly address these issues.

We hope you’ll find ProtectMyAntenna.org useful. Sign up for updates and spread the word!

Thank you for your continued support. It means a great deal to all of us at Aereo.

Yours truly,

A Letter To Our Consumers

Standing up for technology, innovation and progress

At Aereo, our team of engineers set out to create a new way to watch television that would be simple, elegant, and useful. The result: Aereo’s unique cloud-based antenna and DVR technology.

Our innovative technology leverages the power of the Internet to create a smarter, more sophisticated over-the-air antenna for the digital world and an easy-to-use cloud-based DVR that you can control and watch from a smart phone, tablet, computer or Internet connected television.

Despite the fact that consumers have long had the right to use an antenna to watch over-the-air television and make recordings for their own personal use, the major broadcasters filed suit against Aereo in New York alleging copyright infringement and sought to prevent Aereo from providing its technology.  The broadcasters asked the Court to deny you, the consumer, the ability to use the cloud to access a more modern-day television antenna and DVR.

That requested injunction has been denied on three separate occasions in this case, once at the federal district court level and twice at the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. The case is now in front of the United States Supreme Court and oral arguments will be heard on April 22, 2014. Today, we filed our response brief, setting forth the basis for our steadfast conviction that Aereo’s cloud-based antenna and DVR technology falls squarely within the law.

We have every confidence that the Court will validate and preserve a consumer’s right to access local over-the-air television using an individual antenna, make a personal recording with a DVR, and watch that recording on a device of their choice.  We think you should be able to decide whether you use home equipment or whether you take advantage of the ease, convenience and lower cost of cloud-based equipment and storage.

We will keep you updated as our case progresses. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement. Your tweets, Facebook posts and emails of support mean a great deal to our entire team. Keep them coming and keep your voices loud in support of consumer choice and innovation.

Yours truly,

Chet Kanojia
