Aereo landed on Chromecast today, offering the ability to watch and record live TV using Google’s HDMI dongle. The announcement comes a week after the company originally promised it would, and only works through the Aereo Android app for now.

The streaming service, which has been available for Android devices since last year, lets you stream live broadcast TV and offers cloud-based DVR storage for just $8 per month. Aereo works using tons of tiny antennas, which receive TV signals and then beam them straight to your device when you login. You can also try the service out for free with a 30-day trial before make any commitments.

Since its launch, Aereo faced regular legal blowback from TV providers and broadcasters who claim the company is using a small loophole to sneak past multiple copyright laws. The case finally made its way to the supreme court earlier this year, though we’re still waiting for an official decision on Aereo’s fate. For now the service is still going strong, so check it out now before it’s too late.
