How Kanopy Works


Each month, you will you receive a set number of play credits. Your credits reset on the first day of each month at midnight. Unused credits don't roll over to the next month. When you log in to Kanopy, you'll see your remaining credits in the play credit counter in the top right corner of the homepage.

On the My Lists page, the Continue Watching tab displays videos that you've started watching but haven't finished. You can see the number of hours remaining until your credit expires in the top right corner of the video on your Continue Watching list.

Many films on Kanopy have a 48 or 72 hour viewing period, and you can watch the film as many times as you like during that period. You can see how a series uses play credits in the Kanopy mobile app. If "Playlist" appears at the top of the title details page, only one credit is required to access the entire series or season for one viewing period. If "Collection" appears at the top of the title details page, each episode will use a credit.

You have unlimited plays for videos in the Kanopy Kids section!
