The app seems to be full of bugs. For example, I have roughly 90 items in my Watchlist, which I created on my PC. However, on my Android TV, only 3 items appear in my Watchlist, and only a very small number of films appear when I browse or search for content on the Android TV. The app is linked to my account and shows my memberships, and my memberships include unlimited access, but very little of the content that I am supposed to be able to view is actually accessible. Even on my PC, sometimes I am able to add films to my Watchlist and sometimes the button for adding something to my Watchlist never appears on any of the Web pages. Sometimes almost nothing appears when browsing or searching. The entire system seems to be very buggy and unreliable. It's a shame, because (in theory) there are some great films and series in the Kanopy collection, but most of it is inaccessible to me.

The public library offers 6 free "plays" on Kanopy, but the app is terrible on my Roku. It forces me to watch a movie without any interruptions, because any attempt to pause or rewind makes this app crash, and lose my play token. The interface is very frustrating: there's no sort or filter, there are only pre-defined categories, and scrolling has a lag (I have 75 Mbps downstream speed, and no other devices connected, so my connection is not the problem. Other apps work flawlessly) without any indication such as a wheel spinning that it has not reached the end of the list. In summary, this app is buggy and can't perform even the most basic functionality. Hoopla is way better, also free via the library.

This is the Android TV app. Some people are stating that it loads and freezes or the buttons don't work. That is probably because they installed this app on the phone/tablet. This app is for the TV only. FYI, there is a different Kanopy app for the phone/tablet. Anyway, Kanopy has a pretty good selection... and it's free. You can't beat that.
