NEW YORK (AP) — Aereo, which provides broadcast television over the Internet for $8 a month, says it will expand to Utah next month.

The service started in New York last year and expanded to Boston and Atlanta this spring. It already has announced plans to expand to Chicago in September.

Service in Utah will begin Aug. 19 and will be available statewide. It will come with several over-the-air stations, plus the financial channel Bloomberg TV.

Aereo is positioning itself as a cheaper alternative to cable or satellite TV subscriptions. It converts television signals into computer data and sends them over the Internet to subscribers' computers and mobile devices. Subscribers can watch channels live or record them with an Internet-based digital video recorder.

Aereo has won key court rulings in broadcasters' copyright-infringement lawsuit.
