PPLD adds film-streaming service Kanopy


The popular on-demand film streaming service Kanopy is now available for free to Pikes Peak Library District patrons. Library card holders can access Kanopy and sign up to start streaming films instantly by visiting ppld.kanopy.com. Films can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the Kanopy app for iOS, Android, AppleTV, Chromecast, or Roku.

Offering what the New York Times calls “a garden of cinematic delights,” Kanopy showcases more than 30,000 of the world’s best films, including award-winning documentaries, rare and hard-to-find titles, film festival favorites, indie and classic films, and world cinema with collections from Kino Lorber, Music Box Films, Samuel Goldwyn, The Orchard, The Great Courses, PBS, and thousands of independent filmmakers.

Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, we have no control over what content is supplied by Kanopy. Sorry we can't be of more assistance.

Not everyone can keep browsers up to date, due to older operating systems. I can't use kanopy because of this. It would be helpful if ppld would list the browser requirements, so no one wastes their time setting up a password only to find they can't view any of the movies.

Thank you so much for offering this incredible resource! I look forward to sharing the BBC's Muzzy series with my kids and checking out the Great Courses material myself. Especially right now when we're all hunkering down for a while.
