Hoopla Digital Updates Their Roku Channel Adding The Ability to Browsing Their Catalog

In December hoopla digital launched an app on Roku Players and Roku TVs. In the first version, you could only see movies and TV shows you had already borrowed. Now they have updated their app to let users browse for movies and TV shows to view. This means you no longer have to add a show to your library before you try to view it with their Roku Channel.

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.

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.

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?

You can add Hoopla Digital to your Roku HERE.
