Aereo CEO: Chromecast app due "in couple of weeks"


Aereo is set to launch its Chromecast-ready app “in the next couple of weeks”, says CEO Aereo CEO Chet Kanojia. Speaking  with Engadget at SXSW in Austin, Texas, this past weekend, Kanojia said that Aereo may also introduce apps for the XBOX and PlayStation however neither are in development as of today.

Aereo has seen its trouble of both legal issues and technical issues as of late. Last week’s Academy Awards broadcast did not go smoothly for a percentage of subscribers; some had service errors and others had partial playback glitches. To help address these sort of technical problems, Aereo plans two updates to its app in the coming weeks, both designed to help with scaling.
