With prices starting at $8 a month, Aereo will offer 28 broadcast channels, plus the cable channel Bloomberg TV. Service will be available in Boston and surrounding areas in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Aereo announced in January that it plans to expand beyond New York to 22 additional markets. Boston represents the first metropolitan area outside New York. Others expected in the coming months include Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington.

Aereo converts television signals into computer data and sends them over the Internet to subscribers' computers and mobile devices. So far, a federal appeals court has ruled against broadcasters claims that Aereo's service constitutes copyright infringement.
