Cut the Cable Cord with Help from the Baldwin Library

BIRMINGHAM, MI (September 8, 2016) – Have you been considering canceling your cable package but are not sure how to access your favorite content without it? Learn about some of the most popular and user-friendly alternatives on Tuesday, September 13 at 7:00 p.m. at the Baldwin Library.
Maria Williams, Head of Adult Services, will share many options for eliminating or reducing pay TV subscriptions by using free content from the library and an antenna, along with paid content from streaming services in order to access great entertainment options. She will demonstrate how to use a Roku Streaming Stick, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, and an Apple TV and share the pros and cons of each device.
Williams cut the cord in 2009 and has never looked back. “There are so many more options for accessing content now than there were even one or two years ago. HBO, live sports, and all kinds of programming that used to be exclusively available with cable or satellite subscription is now accessible by other, more affordable means. I really love answering questions, showing people new technology, and sharing how to save money on expensive cable bills."
