Kanopy Introduces Subscription Model Focused on Pre-Curated Collections
Kanopy “announced a new subscription model that provides public libraries with more choice and budget flexibility. Kanopy PLUS (Public Library Unlimited Subscriptions) provides unlimited, all-you-can-watch access to pre-curated collections at a fixed price. Alongside the flagship pay-per-use model, this new subscription service provides another option for libraries to connect patrons with Kanopy’s award-winning film catalog.” The first collections, PLUS Packs, comprise 250–300 titles chosen by Kanopy’s staff librarians. More will be added in the future.
The following are the PLUS Packs available now:
- Favorites: A mix of patron and staff favorites that spans the breadth of the full catalog, including Joe Bell, Howards End and Dial M for Murder.
- Easy Viewing: Fun, charming and delightful titles that engage and entertain, such as My Afternoons with Margueritte, Charade and Life Animated.
- Diversity: DEI titles aimed to celebrate our differences, including Miss Juneteenth, Whale Rider and Ken Burns: The Central Park Five.
- World Cinema: International titles that span comedy, drama, romance and more. Titles include Transit, Nowhere in Africa and Downfall.
