So, you’ve signed up for Aereo! Hooray!
In our new series, Aereo 101, we’ll be going over some of Aereo’s basic features and take you through using Aereo, step by step.
Class is now in session.
Lesson 1: Scheduling a future recording
Check your calendar; realize you’ve got a date on the same night as your favorite show. Panic!
Breathe, and decide whether or not the date is actually worth getting off the couch for. Remind yourself to plan your week better.
Log on to Aereo.com and head to the Guide tab (top left corner of your screen). Find the show you want to record and click on it. Or simply type in the name of the show into Aereo’s search feature (the magnifying glass in the top right of the screen).
When given the choice at the bottom of the show’s screen to “Watch” or “Record”, select “Record” and then select how often you would like to record it. (Remember that it’s a DVR so that when you press “Watch” you also make a recording so that you can use all of those nifty DVR features like pause and rewind).
Do a little happy dance.
While you’re on Aereo.com, you can schedule other future recordings as well. Then, you can head to the Recordings tab (to the right of the Guide) in order to access and manage your recordings.
Get to that date and fall in love!

At Aereo, our first priority is to provide consumers with the highest quality technology and user experience possible. Earlier this month, we embarked on our beta test in Chicago and encountered issues with our beta site. As a result, we have delayed our launch in Chicago.
We know you’ve been disappointed about the delay. We’re disappointed too. We are working our fastest to find a solution that works. And, until we’ve found the right solution, we ask for your patience.
Please continue to follow us on this blog, on Twitter and Facebook for updates and a revised launch date. Thanks Chicagoland for your continued interest and support!

Aereo over-the-air TV and cloud DVR review
Last Monday we celebrated our September 2nd Miami launch in style. In the afternoon, our CEO Chet Kanojia spoke at Venture Hive, where he offered advice to young Miami entrepreneurs whose companies are in their earliest stages.
He talked about his past experiences, how he’s learned from his mistakes, and encouraged them to pursue their passions.
Then, we took over the LMNT Arts space for a night of music, food, drinks and of course, demos. DJ YSL spun tunes as Miamians took a spin on Aereo. Some were new users, some had become pros in the short time we’d been live, but the diverse, tech-saavy crowd was enthusiastic and created a great energy for the event. Also, the Aereo cupcakes were a pretty big hit! Long live Aereo cupcakes!
Chet spoke about the future of television, and answered questions from the audience and from Twitter about the state of our Android launch and new Aereo developments on the horizon.
It was a great trip. Thanks to everyone who made both events possible. Miami, enjoy your Aereo!

For only $8 a month (+tax, and data rates may apply, so check with your provider) you can access Aereo’s remote (cloud based) antenna and DVR technology to record and watch live broadcast TV, with the ability to pause and rewind, and save shows for later! Enjoy!

Here at Aereo, we are modernizing the way consumers access and view broadcast television. We also want to celebrate the innovations of the past. That’s why we’re going to be posting Television and Technology Milestones here on our blog. Check them out and get a crash course on the moments that changed history.
1900: The word “Television” is coinedPhoto:http://servatius.blogspot.com
At the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris, a Russian scientist name Constantin Perskyi presented a paper on electromagnetism to the International Electricity Congress. The title of the paper was called “Télévision au moyen de l’électricité” (“Television through electricity”). It was the first use of the word.
Good news! As of today, Aereo is available across the whole state of Utah. The. Whole. State. We’re really excited to bring our technology to you Utahns. To find out if you live in our coverage area, check our list of counties and zip codes.
