Aereo, which does not disclose the number of its subscribers, has not indicated whether it has benefited significantly from the CBS blackout on the Time Warner Cable service in New York, the only affected city where Aereo operates. (It currently also operates in Atlanta and Boston.) Earlier this week, Aereo founder Chet Kanojia told USA Today: This Time Warner-CBS conflict highlights the need for alternatives in the market. ... The issue that consumers are penalized in the market is unfathomable. The company, which assigns tiny antennas to each $8-per-month subscriber that pick up broadcast signals and send them to their TV sets or mobile devices via the Internet, did announce today (Thursday) that it will expand to three more cities next month -- Miami, Houston, and Dallas. (All subscribers receive the first month of service free.)
