Over 30,000 titles including: award-winning documentaries, film festival favourites, classic films, Kanopy kids and great courses.

Changes coming to Kanopy from 1 November 2023. Kanopy will be switching from using credits to tickets.


With this update, you can easily see how many tickets are required from a title's details page and how long you'll have to watch the video before pressing play. Each month you will receive 30 tickets to use.

Kanopy Great Courses will also be using tickets while Kanopy Kids content remains free to watch.

You can watch Kanopy on your computer, TV or mobile device.
