Startup promises a legal alternative to Aereo’s TV streaming

TiVo may have dreams of becoming the next Aereo and giving you access to over-the-air TV in the cloud, but one startup isn’t willing to wait that long. FreeAir.tv is crowdfunding CloudAntenna, an attempt at recreating Aereo’s TV streaming model (it even copied the signature “A” logo) without angering broadcasters. As before, you’re streaming free-to-air TV shows that you can save to the cloud for later — the big difference is that you’re buying an antenna box that sits at home, rather than access to a company-owned, legally dodgy antenna like Aereo’s. You can even pay for a World TV package that gives you 600-plus international stations, in case local programming just isn’t enough.
