Aereo announced today that its first ever Android app will be out on Oct. 22.
Aereo has been fighting hard to stay legal as broadcast and TV companies formed a legal dogpile over the last two years, but so far it's won every battle.
Android "phones, phablets and tablets" join the long list of Aereo-compatible devices, which also includes iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Chrome, Internet Explorer 9, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Apple TV (via Airplay) and Roku devices.

Ride that wave
Aereo captures free, over-the-air broadcast TV content and re-transmits it to subscribing customers' computer and device screens.
Most recently, it was announced this morning that Aereo came out ahead in a legal battle with a Boston TV station that was seeking a preliminary injunction against its services.
The station, WCVB, plans to appeal, according to CNET.
But another, even more important battle could be on Aereo's horizon.
All the way to the top
A coalition of broadcasters will reportedly soon petition the U.S. Supreme Court to review the Aereo case once and for all.
They'll ask the highest court in the land to review the decisions of the lower courts that have sided with Aereo. The Supreme Court doesn't have to take the case, but it may choose to do so anyway.
It's definitely a gamble; depending where the justices land it could either put a stop to Aereo's unauthorized broadcasts once and for all, or give it leave to continue its practices in peace.
