Good news, Bostonians — yours is the second major US city to get Aereo live television access via the web, and it’s starting on May 15. Aereo announced its next city this morning and detailed the service as going live to pre-registered parties on May 15th and becoming widely available to Boston’s “designated market area,” which includes “more than 4.5 million consumers in 15 counties in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont.” We’ve got the full list of counties after the break if you’re interested.

Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg for Aereo, which has plans for expansion in 22 cities just this year. The OTA network internet streaming TV service launched in New York City early last year. Traditional broadcast networks have voiced concern over Aereo’s TV model, even threatening to move to cable should the nascent internet company gets its way in an ongoing legal battle.
