A note about Kanopy:

River Campus Libraries has recently switched from an unlimited model to a mediated model with Kanopy, meaning that some titles on the platform that used to be freely available will now have to be requested. If you find a title on Kanopy that needs to be requested, you will be shown a request form when you click on the title. Please fill out the form and allow 2-3 days for the request to be processed.

Streaming Video Metasearch Services

Metasearch services allow you to search across popular streaming platforms to find where a film or television show is available. Please note that metasearch services may not be fully up-to-date. 

Pay-Per-View Video Services

Movies Free with Ads
