Settling in for a “Friends” marathon but tired of watching alone? An online watch party using your Consolidated Communications wireless Internet connection could be just what you need to beat the “binge-watching in self-isolation blues.”

One of the easiest platforms to start or join a watch party is YouTube. Plus, you can view a wide range of movies and TV shows through the platform. Many are free, but others carry a small fee. You can stream them on any Internet-enabled device, from your smartphone to a smart TV.
