Watching TV is a great way to relax and escape, but accessing entertainment options can take a big bite out of your budget. Learn to leverage your internet service to reduce your cable bill or get rid of cable altogether and take advantage of free or low-cost streaming options instead. Attendees will receive their own free Google Chromecast and information about the range of paid and free streaming services available.

We will also be providing information on how to connect to an Internet Service Provider via the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which offers a $30 monthly discount for internet for qualifying individuals.
