Aereo will reach 22 cities within eight months, and the online antenna service hopes to eventually create its own original programming, said Barry Diller, a major Aereo backer and chairman of IAC, at an industry event on Wednesday. Aereo hopes to reach 20 million homes. At the same event, Disney/ABC Television Group President Anne Sweeney slammed Aereo as "opportunistic piracy." Broadcasters have sued Aereo -- so far unsuccessfully -- for copyright infringement.
