: Aereo is broadening availability of its service for getting live television transmissions over the Internet. Access had been restricted to selected Apple devices and Roku. Now, it's available on Windows computers and a wider selection of Web browsers. There's no Android support yet.

NOT YET EXPANDED: Aereo is still limited to residents of New York City. The company doesn't expect to announce additional cities for a few more months.

THE LAWSUIT: Broadcasters are challenging the legality of Aereo, which lets customers capture over-the-air broadcasts from 29 local channels for viewing on devices, with subscriptions starting at $8 a month.
