Are you tired of paying exorbitant prices for cable channels that you never use? Do you desire an easier, more accessible way to enjoy your favorite shows and movies? Or perhaps you aren't a big TV watcher, but are curious about how you can experience great content affordably and accessibly?
Mystic Access is excited to introduce our comprehensive three-week virtual event, More Ways to Cut The Cord And Discover Terrific TV Content for Less with Blindness or Low Vision. If you're ready to kill the cable bill once and for all, or are just eager to know what options are available, this virtual event may be just what you've been waiting for.
In the last few years, many new and exciting options have emerged to help everyone enjoy their favorite content more easily and affordably than ever. The best news? Many of these options are highly accessible for blind and low vision users, too. In this virtual event, we share a number of options to fit your lifestyle and budget and put them through their paces so that you can discover how they may work for you.
This event is the sequel to a wildly popular three-week class series which Chris and Kim held in April and May of 2018. A wide variety of content was covered, all tailored towards helping you to view programming that you love affordably and accessibly. Anyone who registers for this event will receive the material from that original event (which was later turned into a product) in addition to the newly covered material in this current class. At the end of this course series, the material from both these events will be merged into one highly comprehensive and up to date audio product.
