Aereo Adds Android App, Chromecast Functionality

Aereo, the brilliant (if beleaguered) system that lets you watch or record broadcast TV from any screen, anywhere, just added support for Google Chromecast and a handy Android app. Now, basically any Google-powered device you own can be a TV. With the Android app installed on your device, you can set up your Chromecast wonder-dongle to receive streaming broadcast TV from your smartphone or tablet. The Android app is currently in beta, but it fills out the service’s support which includes iOS, Roku, Chrome browser, and more.
