What’s new in the Kanopy web browser

There’s nothing you need to do to enjoy this upgraded experience. All you need to do is log into your account on your web browser, and you’ll find:

  • New navigation: redesigned for simpler browsing, searching, and account management.
  • Improved searching and browsing: now faster and more accurate with easy-to-use filters and sorting.
  • New “Continue Watching” shelf: contains titles that you’ve started watching, located both on the homepage and on the My Lists page.
  • Clearer play credit counter: See at a glance how many play credits you have left.
  • And more!

Note: These changes affect only the Kanopy website, not the Kanopy mobile or TV apps.
