Aereo streaming NYC stations outside of DMA
A TV broadcaster in NY State tells us he was able to view all of the NYC channels Aereo streams on his Samsung Galaxy 4 (carrier is AT&T, 4G signal) on 4/28 in the Hudson, NY area in a nearby town called Claverack. He was well outside the NYC DMA. Claverack is in Columbia County—clearly well within the Albany, NY DMA. If Aereo claims their technology only covers the markets they are operating in, they must be cutting some corners, because the company’s broadcast streaming service is now pulling viewers—and possibly ratings–from other markets.
