Beyond Netflix: Free video streaming options from local libraries

[D]id you know there are several ways to watch movies and other videos online for free, thanks to your local public library? All you need is a library card and device to watch them on. Most libraries in the state are part of Colorado Libraries Collaborate!, which essentially gets you access to the entire collections of all member libraries. You may need to get a card from each library or library district, but you won’t get ruled out because you don’t live in a particular city. – Tamara Chuang,The Denver PostHoopla Digital: Anythink Libraries, Arapahoe Library District, Boulder Public Library, Douglas County Libraries, Pikes Peak Library District, Pueblo City-County Library District, Steamboat Springs & Town of Vail Public Library.OverDrive:  Aurora Public Libraries, Denver Public Library, Jefferson County Public Library

Meyer: How will cutting the cord affect cable TV and sports?

In 2013, 7.6 million households, or 6.5 percent of homes, cut the cord to cable TV, up from 4.5 percent in 2010, according to Experian Marketing Services. That number will undoubtedly increase as more streaming services come available. […] Our TV bill has dropped from well over $100 a month to about $20. We miss some of the trendier series like “Game of Thrones” and “Homeland.” But those shows eventually show up on DVD or iTunes. Truly, the only deep loss is sports. I worry about teams whose contracts forbid games to be shown to the local audience on anything other than cable or satellite channels. – Jeremy P. Meyer,The Denver Post
