The Cord-Cutting Workshops: Articles and Resources
Friday, July 7th, 2017 @ 1:49PM
On June 27, Rep. Hunt hosted two workshops at Cape Cod Community College educating consumers on how to save money by exploring lower-cost alternatives to cable or satellite TV through cord-cutting. The workshops stemmed from his efforts to bring residential high-speed internet competition to Cape Cod through a partnership between Barnstable County and OpenCape.
The workshops were great successes; the afternoon session attracted an above-capacity crowd of over 125 attendees. Nearly 70 attended the evening session.
Given their positive reception, plans to host additional seminars around the Cape are in the works. Stay tuned!
This morning, Randy offered his take on the workshops on 95 WXTK’s Ed Lambert in the Morning. You can stream the entire 53-minute segment below:
For those who were unable to attend the first round of workshops, the 18-page informational hand-out can be found on the resources page. Additionally, the August 2018 issue of Consumer Reports (which is dedicated to cord-cutting) is an excellent resource for those eager to learn more.
A link to the video feed from the afternoon session will be uploaded to this page once it is finalized, which should be soon. Notification of the video’s posting will be sent to workshop attendees and subscribers to Randy’s “General Interest” distribution list.
