Sick and tired of cable TV service? Realize you don’t need 1000+ channels and want something cheaper? Maybe just a few channels and a few specific shows are what you really want? Good news! New options have matured, enough to be able to legitimately replace cable with little to no content lost. You can (legally) have your shows and watch them too!

Registration required. You can register online or by calling Information Services at 847-677-5277 x230.
