Report: AT&T could bundle Aereo's TV service with wireless data

Aereo, which streams local TV broadcast signals online to smartphones, tablets and other IP-connected devices for a fee, could strike a partnership with AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T), according to a Wall Street Journal report. The report, citing unnamed sources, said Aereo has had talks with AT&T and Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH). Under one idea that was discussed, AT&T would sell broadband or wireless data subscriptions paired with Aereo's video service, the report said. Aereo declined to comment on any specific talks. In January the company announced a plan to reach 22 markets in 2013, including Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. The service is currently only available in the New York City metropolitan area. Article (sub. req.)
