Greetings everyone,

I wanted to spread the word about a fantastic and inexpensive way to access online news, entertainment, and quality programming. Thirteen is affiliated with the WNET, otherwise known as Media with Impact in the Public Broadcasting sector.

For as little as a $5 donation a month, you can watch a wide variety of programs: PBS Newshour, American Masters, Nature, Great Performances, NOVA, NYC-Arts, Masterpiece Theater, and documentary specials, to name a few.

Each month, you receive a small program booklet with programming information, including radio programing. Usually that month's upcoming special is featured on the cover. I don't recall how I learned about this, but it is really wonderful to have alternatives to Netflix and Amazon. Plus, inevitably, you learn something you didn't know. It's great for kids, with a lot of children's programming too.

Since it is out of New York, the main focus is naturally on New York, but not always. The e-mail support is responsive if you have a problem of any kind. It can be used with the mobile Thirteen app too. So you can watch on a desktop, Roku or similar player, as well as a phone or tablet.

Check it out because it can be a painless way to learn about history, the wider world and current events.
