Fun Things to do: Streaming Movies

Streaming Video Resources

If you have a Roku, you can add Kanopy as an app to your device and watch movies and films on your television set. If you wish to do that, you can follow the set up steps below

  1. Create a Kanopy account
    In order to watch Kanopy on your Roku device, you will need a Kanopy account that is connected to a subscribing library. If you don't already have one, learn how to create your Kanopy account here.
  2. Set up your Roku
    If you are new to Roku and have not yet set up your Roku device, please follow the Roku instructions.
  3. Add Kanopy to your Roku
    Once you have your Roku device and Kanopy account set up, add the Kanopy channel to your Roku by going to Streaming Channels > Search Channels, and search for Kanopy. Select Kanopy from the search results, then Add Channel. The Kanopy channel will now appear on your Roku’s home screen.
  4. Link your Kanopy channel on Roku to your Kanopy profile
    When you first open the Kanopy channel, you will be able to browse content, but not play the films. In order to play, you will need to link your Kanopy account. To do this:

    - Select any film and press play. This will trigger the linking process and display further instructions on screen (outlined in the following steps).
    - Go to kanopy.com/link using a computer or mobile device. If you are not signed into your account, you will be prompted to do so before you can enter the code.roku_link1.png-
    - Enter the code displayed on the left side of your TV screen.
    - Click Submit.

    If the linking is successful, the message will change on your Roku to let you know that you can press the OK button to start viewing films. Once this is complete, you will be able to start viewing films on your Roku. If you need to generate a new code, click the back arrow button on the Roku remote and select the film again.

DVDs

You just need to coordinate with Andrew Adler, Director of Library Services, for a time to pick up the items from the library. Some of the DVDs we have include those listed below.
