____________________________________________ TUESDAY TALKS - A monthly series of free talks of interest to Agers in Place Downtown...
CUTTING THE CORD
Nearly a fifth of millennials do not subscribe to cable, but watch their TV’s through the internet, according to the New York Times. The phenomenon of “cutting the cord” in an age of cable company monopolies and price hikes seems appealing to more of us as technology broadens our options.
Our Tuesday Talk will cover the basics about Internet Service Providers, Streaming Devices, and Digital Antennas, and tackle DSL v. cable, basic streaming requirements, security, and screen mirroring. We’ll delve into Roku/Fire TV, Apple TV, Smart TV’s, Chromecast, and cell phones/tablets/computers. We’ll answer nagging concerns like, “can I get my local channels?” and “will I receive live TV broadcasts?” There will be plenty of time for questions
