Current Class Description
TV Streaming - the Switch from Cable TV
Mar 23 | 10 am-12 pm | Online
Register by Mar 18
ALL member Jeff Timm presented a lecture to ALL members in January 2020 entitled "Finally I Cut the Cord - My Journey to Lower the Cost of TV/Movie Viewing With More & Better Content". One might ask, why present this topic again in such a short time? The answer is simple ... a lot has changed regarding content and personal viewing choices in spite of the demise of the in-person movie theatre industry and movie studios going direct to streaming, as well as, the introduction of many more streaming choices. If you are not currently streaming, this class will give you the knowledge to begin. If you are currently streaming, you will learn about new content both fee-based and free.
