Cloud Power: Aereo May Expand Into Subscription Video
CEO Kanojia says company has no interest in replicating cable channel bundle, but will look to deliver subscription-based video content

The company currently offers a service in its initial New York City market that provides live and DVR access to 28 local TV channels, delivered over the Internet to various devices.
"We have no desire to recreate the cable business... from a wholesale-cost perspective," Kanojia said.
However, he said, "There's a bunch of viewers who like the idea of broadcast with online content... The value/price equation [of pay TV] is absolutely skewed."
Kanojia was interviewed by Multichannel News editor-in-chief Mark Robichaux at the Multichannel News/B&C "TV's Cloud Power" event Thursday.
Aereo uses dime-size antennas, mounted in rooftop arrays, that are dedicated to individual subscribers. Those provide customers remote access to free over-the-air TV, in the same way consumers at home can legally use an antenna watch broadcast TV, according to the company.
