As cable TV prices continue to rise, more and more people are cutting the cord of cable TV subscriptions and streaming their own entertainment through alternative services. With a high-speed internet connection and a smart TV or Roku-type device, you can watch movies, TV series, and even sports and news–on your own schedule and for much less money. Fall River Public Library is offering a FREE workshop that will give you an overview of what you need to get started and how to put together your own entertainment package. You’ll learn about smart TVs, which stream automatically, and about devices you can hook up to a regular TV that will allow it to access the internet. We’ll look at low-cost options like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, and even some free resources you can get from the library, like Hoopla.
