Hewie Poplock will speak on “Cutting the cord: Things to consider before firing your cable company.”


There are many reasons to cut the cord, according to Hewie Poplock, the featured presenter scheduled for the next BCUG General Meeting on Thursday evening, March 28, in the large meeting room of the main branch of the Middletown Public Library.

Most do so to save money. Others do it to have better choices and just to be able to fire their cable company. There are many choices of products and equipment, as well as services that are now available to let us change the ways we have done things in the past.

Hewie will talk about over the air and over the Internet services, including the many ways to fulfill your wants and needs as to TV viewing. He will include information about Broadband and even Internet home phones. This presentation will help you understand many of the newest possibilities for TV viewing and what to look for to satisfy you and your family.

Be prepared to have a lot of the confusion make some sense and to determine if it may be the move for you soon. TV, as we know it will disappear in the next few years and you will understand what is happening and what choices are available now and what to look for down the road.
