The Free Streaming Service Kanopy Adds Sesame Street

Today the free streaming services Kanopy announced a new partnership to bring 24 episodes of Sesame Street to Kanopy Kids.

“For the last 50 years, ‘Sesame Street’ has influenced generations around the world by leading educational growth and social change,” says Kanopy CEO Kevin Sayar. “We are elated to work with Sesame Workshop and reach new audiences with the timeless series, while reinforcing Kanopy Kids’ mission to encourage social and emotional development, promote respect for community diversity and inspire creativity.”

Kanopy is a free streaming service offered through universities and public libraries that specializes in ‘thoughtful entertainment.’ It’s a great, ad-free resource for cord cutters who love movies, especially classics and world cinema. They also feature things like kids programming, documentaries, and learning courses. On their website, you can search for your local participating library branch, or university if you’re a student or professor and set up a free account using your library card or student login.

“We’re thrilled to bring this collection of ‘Sesame Street’ episodes to Kanopy library communities nationwide,” said Scott Chambers, Sesame Workshop’s Senior Vice President/General Manager, Educational Media and Licensing, North America. “As viewing habits change, free-to-the-user services like this one make it easier than ever for all families to access quality children’s content they can trust, which is essential to Sesame Workshop’s mission.”
