Why we purchased this resource for our patrons
Kanopy is an ad-free streaming service that distributes content through membership at public libraries and universities. New!: Every subscriber has 21 tickets (or dollars) per month. The tickets get spent depending on the length of the video, for example, 2 hours or less will be 2 tickets, from 2 to 4 hours will be 3 tickets and 6+ hour-programs take 5 tickets. Every movie or film series has a viewing period proportional to their length.
In contrast to popular free streaming TV services that offer live TV channels or on-demand movies and TV shows with a traditional commercial break format, Kanopy instead focuses on providing movies, documentaries, foreign films, classic cinema, independent films and educational videos without commercial interruption.
Oh, and did we mention that it also has the Great Courses asa film series in its collection?
