Aereo's streaming live TV over the Web service is so controversial and potentially disruptive to the TV business, that the CEO's Q&A at Goldman Sachs' Communacopia conference drew a standing room only audience.

Aereo charges less than $10 a month for live and recorded TV to connected TVs and mobile devices, drawing a slew of lawsuits from content creators who want to be paid for their content.

Tuesday Aereo announced it's adding four more cities to its rollout plan this year—Columbus, Ohio, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and San Antonio—for a total of 27 markets and reach to 105 million people by year-end.
