Hoopla Digital is Now Available on The Apple TV & Fire TV


Recently Hoopla Digital announced that they will be releasing apps on the Roku, Apple TV, and the Fire TV. Over the weekend Hoopla Digital launch their app on the Apple TV and the Fire TV. The Roku channel will launch in the next few weeks.

So what is Hoopla? Hoopla Digital teams up with local libraries to offer free streaming for members of more than 1,600 public library systems across North America. Public libraries are a great resource for cord cutters—not only for free DVD rentals but now also for streaming.

hoopla has been busy adding new content. Recently it struck a deal with Viacom and Paramount to add hundreds of popular TV shows from networks such as Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Comedy Central, MTV, Spike, VH1, TV Land, and CMT.

Now there are limits to the service. In my case I can only borrow 50 items a month. So I can watch 50 movies or watch 25 movies and borrow 25 music albums a month. You are going to want to ask your local library what limits they may have.

So how do you get access to hoopla? You need a library membership. If you want to stream the great library of content, contact your local library and find out if they offer Hoopla. Chances are they do have a free streaming service for members.

You can find the Hoopla app for the Fire TV HERE.

If you are a cord cutter make sure to take advantage of your local library. You are paying for it with your taxes so why not take advantage of the services?

    50 a month is huge. Only 6 here.

    Whoa. Is it recent stuff? That could make up for the lack of Comedy Central on many live TV streaming platforms.

    i can borrow 10 a month i think, not bad for free stuff, depends on how good those taxes are going in your community i guess lol

    This might be grand, if the library is enabled. A year or so ago, I emailed Hoopla and was told to try to convince the local library to sign on. They didn’t, but streaming via Roku should be much better IF the local library can/will do it…

    An app for Fire TV? I have Fire TV and a Fire tablet, and both are registered under my name under my Amazon account.

    On Amazon, I was able to find and load the Hoopla app onto my Fire tablet. However, no matter what I do, Amazon will not show my Fire TV connected device on the drop down device menu so that it can be delivered, nor can I find it when I go onto my Fire TV device and search for it.

    I can find Hoopla on Google play and install it onto my various Android devices, but I really don’t want to do any side loading of Google Play onto my Fire TV just for an app.

    Are you hearing any issues as to why Fire TV doesn’t actually seem to be see the Hoopla app for download on my device?
