Kanopy is an ad-free on-demand video streaming platform, designed for libraries, that offers viewers a large collection of award-winning films and inspiring documentaries. You can now view up to 10 movies per month with your free patron account.

Visit your MCCS installation library for more information and to create your unique account for Kanopy access. To view content go to http://dod.kanopy.com. You can also access your account with the Kanopy app on phones, tablets, TV apps, and online.

A patron account is allowed 10 plays (movies) per month. Once you begin to play a movie, it counts as one play, and you have three days to finish watching it. Your account will reset at midnight on the first day of each calendar month. Unused play credits will not roll over into the next month.

Kanopy also includes content for children ages two to eight. Kanopy Kids features a diverse selection of curated educational and entertaining content that inspire and inform. The collection includes movies, TV series, animated storybooks, live action, and animated favorites. Parents can also choose to implement parental controls to enable them to stay within the dedicated Kanopy Kids area for age-appropriate content. Enjoy unlimited plays in Kanopy Kids.
