I came across Hoopla when I was looking for something else at, which shows they have over 6500 titles available for streaming to library members in Canada.

Help at Hoopla shows the participating libraries and the various devices they support including Chromecast.

Winnipeg Library offers both and here's what they say:
Q. How are Kanopy and Hoopla different?

Kanopy and Hoopla both offer streaming video through libraries. They both operate on a credit per month system to help libraries control costs (as of February 2018, both services allow 5 credits per month per WPL cardholder). However, there are some differences:
  • Hoopla also offers music albums.
  • Hoopla also offers a download for offline viewing option but Kanopy only streams video, so you will always need an Internet connection to use Kanopy.
  • Hoopla is aimed more at popular entertainment, where Kanopy focuses more on documentaries and independent and classic films. However both are great sources of entertainment.
  • Kanopy has more online learning content than Hoopla.
