Starting November 1, Kanopy accounts will now have 30 tickets to use per month on their variety of movies, television, and educational videos (instead of the previous 10 play credits). Each title is now clearly marked with the number of tickets it requires and time period it can be borrowed. The ticket count and borrowing period are assigned by Kanopy. Access to Kanopy Kids remains unchanged and does not require tickets.
