Aereo's created quite a buzz in the worlds of pay television and media connectivity thanks to a platform that allows users to access broadcast television using compatible mobile devices while on the go. The idea, according to Aereo, is that users can pause, rewind or fast-forward any program they're watching live in much the same way they can with their home DVR system.
