Inmate Devices & Content
ConnectNetwork is excited to offer tablets to inmates at select facilities across the country.
These high-tech devices are similar to common handheld tablets, but are made exclusively by GTL. Tablets offer specialized content and services for inmates to use during their stay at correctional facilities (where available).
The tablets allow your loved ones access to a suite of education and entertainment content, plus the ability to place phone calls, send messages, and get general on-site support.
Some tablet content and services are free, such as select reading material, utilities (dictionary, calendar, calculator, etc.), and quick links to common facility tools. Other subscription services are available at an additional cost.
Subscription services that require funding include:
Inmates can choose from 12 million+ different music tracks in various music categories.
For reading buffs, over 70,000+ titles are offered in many different literary genres.
Your loved one can pass the time engaging with puzzles or action, sports, and brain-challenging games.
Access to breaking news and hot topics from the most popular news sites will keep your inmate informed.
Access to radio channels from local FM stations to stay connected with the community.
Real-time audio from broadcasted television can keep your inmate entertained for hours.
Please note: each facility determines available services and their costs.
How It Works
Each inmate can sign in to a tablet device to view their account profile and services available at the facility. Using supplied headphones, inmates may also use the tablet to place phone calls to you from more private and comfortable facility locations, rather than using the traditional wall-mounted phones.
Free services are already available for use on the device. Subscription services are funded separately by family and friends with deposits made into an inmate’s Debit Link account. Inmates will then be able to purchase subscription services and premium content to enjoy.
What It Costs
Tablet devices include some services and the content is free. The subscription services require additional funding. There may be multiple options such as 7-day or 30-day subscriptions. Costs are dependent upon the available services and the facility.
Phone calls made from the tablets and messages sent to/from the tablets are charged at the rates set by the facility. To estimate costs for phone calls, sign in to your account and click “Rate & Fees Calculator” at the bottom of the page.
