With the increasing popularity of streaming services like Netflix and Hulu and the decreasing popularity of traditional cable, more and more people are making the decision to “cut the cord” and do away with their cable TV subscriptions altogether.
According to Statistica, an online research and statistics portal, the number of “cord-cutters” in the United States is expected to grow to more than 40 million by 2021—the main reasons being high prices and online streaming services.
Oneida County Rural Telephone is hosting free ‘Cut The Cord’ information sessions aimed at teaching community members how to leverage streaming technology and break free from cable TV. Sessions are free and open to the public. They will take place at Northland Communications, located at 9560 Main Street in Holland Patent. Refreshments will be served. Attendees who sign up for a new high-speed fiber Internet contract through Oneida County Rural Telephone will receive a free ROKU device for streaming TV, cable free. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.
All of our sessions are currently closed. Contact our customer support team at (315) 865-5201 for more information about upcoming events.
