Beginning tomorrow, Boston residents will have another option that gives them "what they want, when they want it"... at least with network television.

It's called Aereo. The premise is simple. Aereo uses an array of antennas to pull broadcast signals for free out of the air... then allows online subscribers to watch those channels on any internet device they choose, plus use Aereo's built-in DVR function as well.

Guests

Chet Kanojia, founder and CEO of Aereo.

Hiawatha Bray, tech columnist for the Boston Globe.

This segment aired on May 14, 2013.
