Updated hoopla App

hooplaHave you had a chance to try out our new hoopla streaming video service yet? Hoopla allows KDL cardholders to stream 4 movies or television shows per month FREE! (Update: As of February 2014, the limit has been raised to 8 movies or TV shows per month!) Their database currently contains over 10,000 videos, with more added all the time. They’ve also been making changes to their mobile app for iOS and Android, recently releasing a new version 2.0. “My Titles” has now been separated into separate lists for “Borrowed” and “Favorites,” and a new menu has been added to the left side of the screen. Watch the demo video below for more information, and check out hoopla today!

    I am enjoying Hoopla so far, but curious why a TV series with several episodes counts as an individual for each Episode. At this rate, it will take me 8 months to watch The Mothers-in-Law (32 episodes).
    Your selections are great. I never knew PBS had this many documentaries. Thanks!

    Hi Linda,

    Thanks for your question and we’re glad to hear that you’re enjoying this new service! We checked with hoopla, and they say that it is set up this way due to the studios’ licensing policies.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
