Aereo’s Internet TV service is so good it’s scary

My favorite thing about network television is that I watch so little of it. It’s like getting a few extra hours of life every week. But for those who can’t get enough of the stuff, Boston just became a little more entertaining.

Today marks the local launch of Aereo. It’s a new Internet-based service that lets subscribers watch live television broadcasts in a variety of ways — on their personal computers; on Apple Inc.’s iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch; or on a standard television equipped with Apple TV or the Roku Internet TV device.
