Kanopy is an on-demand streaming video platform for public libraries and universities[1] that offers viewers a large collection of award-winning films and documentaries.[2] Kanopy includes children's programming with its subdivision Kanopy Kids; all members have access to the children's videos section with their account.[3]

Contents History

Kanopy was founded in 2008 by CEO Olivia Humphrey, as an educational tool for universities.[4] It is headquartered in San Francisco, California.[5]


Kanopy provides each participating public library[6] and university with a dedicated and customizable website through which members can stream films. The service includes features such as captions, transcripts, clip creation, and playlist creation that allow users to share videos.[7]

Business model

Public library patrons, and university students and faculty are able to watch Kanopy free-of-charge with their institution’s library card. Institutions pay for the films their students and faculty watch on a per-view basis.[7]

Librarians have access to an administrative dashboard which allows them to view user analytics and adjust budgets.[7]

Device support

Kanopy can be viewed on a computer, television, or mobile device via a web browser supporting HTML5 video or the Kanopy app for Amazon Fire Tablet and Fire Stick, Android, Apple iOS, and Roku.[8]
