Changes as of November 1

     We received a notification from Kanopy that the current play credit system will be replaced with a new ticket system on November 1, 2023. Starting on November 1, 2023, each patron will have 15 tickets per month to watch films on Kanopy. Kanopy Kids is not included in the ticket system, and you can access its content without using any tickets. 

  • With this update, next to the play button, you will see how many tickets a title will use and how long you will have access to it before pressing play. 

  • Episodic content will be labeled clearly so you know how many tickets it takes per season or per episode. 

  • Ticket-free content, including titles in Kanopy Kids, will be labeled as 0 tickets. 

Should you have any questions, concerns, or feedback regarding these changes, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us or go to Kanopy Help. We appreciate your understanding during this transition. 

*Play credit exceptions

  • The Great Courses Series: The Great Courses Series doesn’t use tickets. You may stream 1 series from The Great Courses per month per card with 30 days of access. 

  • Kanopy Kids titles: Kanopy Kids titles don’t require play credits. You have unlimited plays for videos in the Kanopy Kids section.
