The service is currently available in 10 metropolitan areas that include New York, Boston, Houston and Atlanta, among others. The new investment will help Aereo expand to more areas as well as get the service running on more devices, such as consoles and Smart TVs. Speaking about the development, Aereo CEO Chet Kanojia said, Aereo experienced tremendous growth in 2013 and we expect 2014 to be another blockbuster year.
