In early 2022, your library or school’s Kanopy website was upgraded to a new design. This new web experience is more intuitive, responsive, and user-centered than ever before.
Our website design improvements make it easier to find films you'll love, organize your favorites, and start watching sooner. We've also worked behind the scenes to improve overall site performance in order to create a film-viewing experience that's faster and more reliable.
Here’s an overview of the updates on your Kanopy website.
Note: These changes affect only the Kanopy website, not the Kanopy mobile or TV apps.
The top navigation bar of your library’s Kanopy website has been redesigned for simpler browsing, searching, and account management.
Improved searching and browsing
Kanopy’s new search is now faster and more accurate. Find the perfect film with easy-to-use filters and sorting.
A simplified Browse menu lets you pick from currently featured categories and genres.
New “Continue Watching” shelf
Find titles that you’ve started watching on your new Continue Watching shelf, located both on the homepage and on the My Lists page. My Lists also includes your watchlist and custom playlists.
Clearer play credit counter (public libraries only)
You can see how many play credits you have left (out of your total monthly play credits) using the play credit counter near the top-right corner of the website. Hover over the play credit counter to see more information about play credits.
New time remaining indicator
Titles you’ve started watching display the number of hours remaining until your play credit expires.
Prominent public performance rights indicator
A "PPR" icon appears near the top of the details page for films that can be shown at free public events.
New live transcript tool
You can click the new “enable transcripts” button while playing a title to bring up a live transcript. The live transcript plays alongside the film and allows for easy excerpting.
Simplified account menu
A simplified account menu makes it easier to manage your account, link other devices to your account, and find support. You can edit your account details, add or remove library memberships, and set up parental controls under My Account.
