Aereo originally announced plans to launch in Chicago on September 13, but has delayed its commercial debut in the Windy City. An Aereo spokeswoman said the delay is due to a "technical issue" discovered during the testing phase there. Aereo, she said, is "eager to launch in Chicago and our engineering team is working as quickly as possible to resolve the issue. As soon as we have a solution in place, the plan is to announce a revised launch date and begin to roll out invitations to those consumers who are pre-registered with us."
