Play credits are used to play videos on Kanopy. Each month your account receives 15 play credits.

A video uses a play credit once you press play at the start. Most videos have a 3 day viewing period where you can watch it as many times as you like without using another play credit. For the BBC TV series, you have 2 days to watch the entire season. If you need longer, you need to use another play credit. With The Great Courses, you have 30 days to watch an entire course.

Stream from a computer, mobile device, Apple TV and Chromecast.
