NEW YORK (AP) - Billionaire Barry Diller's Aereo is broadening availability of its service even as broadcasters challenge the legality of the startup's live television transmissions over the Internet.

Aereo is still limited to residents of New York City, but it's now available on additional devices including Windows computers and on a wider selection of Web browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Before, access was restricted to selected Apple devices such as the iPad, as well as the Roku streaming set-top box.

The company says it doesn't expect to announce additional cities for a few more months. It also says the service isn't likely to be available on Android devices until late this year.

Aereo lets customers capture over-the-air broadcasts for viewing on devices, with subscriptions starting at $8 a month.
