      Protect Your Family Online with Internet SafeGuard

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Jul 12, 2018 12:00:00 PM

      How many hours a day do you spend online? How many a week? How many a month?

      We live in an age where the Internet is no longer a luxury, but an integral part of our daily lives. Almost everything can be managed through the Internet - banking, shopping, socializing, working – the possibilities are literally endless. So, it makes sense why people are spending more and more time connected.

      However, being constantly connected is a big responsibility. For as much great content there is on the web, there is bad content too. Malicious, dangerous content that can have real effects on your life, like identify theft for example, if you aren’t careful.

      Being your hometown provider means we strive to take care of our neighbors the best we can. That is why we partnered with a leader in cyber security, F-Secure. We’re excited to bring you the new comprehensive protection suite, called Internet SafeGuard, to ensure you and your loved ones stay safe online, on any device you use.

      Don’t get me started on Cincinnati weather. One day we wake up to snow, the next day it is 80 degrees and humid, and the day after that it is thunder storming and the temperature fluctuates every five minutes.

      Planning Your Perfect Opening Day & Parade Day

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Mar 27, 2018 3:00:04 PM

      UPDATE 3/28 - Due to rain, the Reds Opening Day game has been rescheduled to Friday, 3/30. Event information below updated. See the official press release for more details. 

      Since 1869, the Cincinnati Reds, originally Red Stockings, have been playing baseball and have quite an interesting history. As baseball’s first team of professionals, they finished their inaugural season with a perfect 57-0 record. The teams first ever loss in 1870 was to the Brooklyn Atlantic's in extra innings, falling 8-7.

      The National League was established in 1876 with Cincinnati as a charter member until 1880, when the Red Stockings were kicked out of the league due to a refusal to stop selling beer during their games and stop renting out their ballpark on Sundays.

      In 1881 the American Association was formed, where the reds would play their next eight seasons. On April 17. 1889, the Reds’ first Opening Day festivities occurred. There were decorations all around the ballpark, and the game was preceded by a concert by the Cincinnati Orchestra. In November of the same year, Cincinnati was granted re-admission to the National League and joined the other seven teams.

      The first Opening Day parade took place on April 22, 1891, and was organized by team owner John T. Brush. The parade was made up of Webber’s military band and the Reds and their opponents, the Cleveland Spiders, pulled by two horse-drawn wagons.

      Now 127 years later, the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day festivities have grown into something that original team could never have imagined. A celebration of epic proportions. This year is a little different, with the Opening Day game and parade taking place on different days, simply meaning there are two days of celebrations.

      The Oscar Goes To - A Guide to the 90th Annual Academy Awards

      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Mar 1, 2018 3:40:02 PM

      Sunday brings the largest award show of the season, the 90th Annual Academy Awards. The Oscars are always full of interesting surprises, fashion, twists and turns, for which I would like to thank the Academy.

      Every year we expect the films that have won multiple awards at the preceding award shows as favorites to win Oscars, but there always seems to be some unexpected surprises. Last year had one of the most notable twists, when the wrong film was initially announced as the winner of the best picture category. If that could happen, who knows what else is possible!

      This year’s awards are sure to be interesting. There are a few films that racked up some major nominations, as well as some underdogs that have also earned their chance to be recognized.

      To get yourself ready for Hollywood’s big night, below we put together a list of the nominated films and when and where you can catch them on Fioptics On Demand, major nomination categories, and how to make sure you’re tuned in for all the action on Oscar Sunday.
