Kanopy Streaming Video

Kanopy offers a broad selection of over 30,000 streaming films, documentaries and training covering various educational topics and feature films: business, the arts, training, foreign language films, health sciences, media and communication, natural sciences, social sciences, teacher education and more. You can stream Kanopy videos on Apple TV, Chromecast, AndroidTV, Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, Roku, your computer, or download the app on your phone or tablet.

In Kanopy, you will receive 4 play credits every month to watch films or TV series. (Some TV series, like BBC, allow you to access an entire season with one play credit.) Once you press play on a video, you will automatically use 1 play credit. Once you press play on a video, you have 48 or 72 hours (depending on the title) to view it as many times as you would like without using another play credit. After your checkout time has passed, you will have to use another play credit.

Kanopy Kids and Great Courses do not require a play credit. You can watch all of the video lessons inside the course they selected as many times as they’d like in that 30-day period.

Note: only those cardholders with an RCLS card from Ulster County are eligible. These include Cragsmoor, Ellenville, Gardiner, and Wallkill.
