West Gippsland Libraries members can use their membership to stream from over 30,000 movies, documentaries and shows – for free!
Free and legal, Kanopy is the library sector’s answer to Netflix, Stan and other streaming platforms. In much the same way you have been able to (and still can) borrow DVDs of the latest and greatest movies, documentaries and shows from West Gippsland Libraries, you can now use your smartphone, tablet, PC, Android TV, Apple TV and Telstra TV to access Kanopy and stream content in Full HD.
Members are each given a total of five (5) credits each month. When you watch something, it counts as a credit. Families with mutliple members aged 18+ (Kanopy’s age limit) mean a couple would have as many as 10 free movies a month!
A Kanopy Kids section allows users unlimited plays on children’s content – perfect for entertaining the kids or grand kids.
Even if you already subscribe to another platform, Knaopy is free to access with your Library Membership, so it’s worth a look.
You can also cast content from your smart device to a Chromecast – it’s super convenient.
