NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - The Barry Diller-backed internet company that challenges cable and satellite TV services by offering inexpensive live television online plans to expand beyond New York City this spring.

In the wake of a federal court ruling that tentatively endorsed its legality, Aereo will bring its $8-a-month service to Dallas, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and 18 other markets in the U.S., as well as to New York’s suburbs. You can pre-register for service on Aereo’s website now.

A federal judge in New York ruled in July that the service doesn’t appear to violate copyright law because individual subscribers are assigned their own, tiny antenna at Aereo’s data center. That makes it analogous to the free signal a consumer would get with a regular antenna at home. Although the case is being appealed, Aereo is announcing expansion plans in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
