Aereo, the service that lets you watch terrestrial over-the-air TV on other devices via the internet, has announced that its Android app will support Chromecast streaming starting May 29th. The functionality will come with an update to its app, which is currently in beta on the Play Store.

While Aereo is already a pretty neat idea and a great value — if you happen to be in a market where it's available — at $8 per month, the addition of Chromecast streaming brings things to another level. With the price of a Chromecast being less than what you'd spend on a good HDTV antenna yourself, you'll now be able to stream live local programming direct to your TV and seamlessly move between the big screen and your phone or tablet.

When it launches, Aereo will join several other high-profile apps adding Chromecast support — the most recent of which being BT Sport, Flixster and Rhapsody.
