Kanopy (10 Tickets Per Month)
The popular on-demand film streaming service Kanopy is now available for free at ROPL. Library card holders can access Kanopy and sign up to start streaming films instantly. Films can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the Kanopy app for iOS, Android, AppleTV, Chromecast or Roku.
On November 1, 2023, the Kanopy play credit system will be replaced with a new ticket system. Instead of play credits, users will have a monthly ticket allotment. Every title will be labeled with a ticket value and viewing window, so you will know how many tickets a title will use prior to viewing it. Royal Oak Public Library card holders will be given 10 tickets per month.
