Cord Cutting Workshops

Streaming resources for the community

Workshops Held


“Cord cutting” is an emerging trend where people aim to reduce their cable TV bill or completely get rid of their cable service altogether by taking advantage of free or low-cost streaming options instead. Thanks to a generous gift of over 300 Google Chromecast devices from Google Fiber, KC Digital Drive hosts Cord Cutting workshops that provide attendees with a free Chromecast, help them learn to use it, and get them up to speed with information about the range of streaming services available.

Attendees of this workshop also learn about choosing an internet plan fast enough to handle their streaming and following the workshop, how to apply for the Affordable Connectivity Program benefit.

If you are an organization that would like to host a workshop, contact Peter Smith at for more information.
