Would you like to learn how to save money on your entertainment costs?  Approximately 16% of adults have 'cut the cord' -  they don't watch television and use view on demand services like Netflix and Hulu instead. These services let you watch what you want to see, when you want to see it by streaming video over the Internet. Since all content is now produced in digital format, more and more is available online.  The problem is how to find what you want and how to view it on your big screen TV or portable device. Commercial products like Xbox One and Apple TV promise to become your digital media center but there is an open source alternative - XBMC.


With XBMC you can watch streamed television shows and movies or local video files on your TV. XBMC was designed for display on a large screen and to work with common remote controls. 
A lunchtime presentation at North York Central Library on July 8 shows you how XBMC works and what the setup and installation options are and what problems can occur.  Bring your lunch and join us!
