Something to Watch While You're Self-Isolating

Posted: March 27, 2020 9:00:00 AM CDT

Spring 2020 and the threat of COVID19 have us all holed up in our homes self isolating and social distancing. I thought this would be a great time to tell you all about one of our library databases called Kanopy.

Kanopy is a streaming video database similar to Netflix. While there are academic videos in Kanopy, there is also a wealth of feature length movies and documentaries. You can even load the Kanopy app on your smart TV, log into your account, and watch movies until it is safe to go outside again. The best part is that TAMU-CC students, faculty, and staff can stream from this site for free!

You can access Kanopy at

In order to use the service, you must first sign up for an account. Once you create an account, you can sign in and start watching movies.

For help connecting your Kanopy account with your smart TV, see this guide.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!
