Media Entertainment and Streaming has become a big part of our lives. In the past two+ years, we have been a captive audience and streaming services took note and exploded because of it. In this informative and insightful class, James Corsica will take you through the many offerings of streaming video sevices and streaming music services, streaming equipment, SmartTVs, third-party devices, costs, and what this all can mean to your entertainment needs and enjoyment.
Over the past five years, the world of streaming has seen the rise of a new player: Podcasts. The subject almost defies classification because it includes stand-alone shows, episodic shows, fiction and non-fiction. Jim will discuss and demonstrate some examples.
