How do I watch online movies and TV from the library?

JCPL patrons can access a selection of feature films, documentaries, and television series through our Hoopla Digital service.

What can I use to watch online movies and TV?

Hoopla offers a downloadable app for many smartphones and tablets. Visit the app store on your mobile device and search "Hoopla" to download.

You can also stream video on a desktop or notebook computer directly from the Hoopla website.

Can I download movies and TV to watch without an internet connection?

Video can be downloaded to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets for the duration of the 3-day checkout period. Look for the "Download" link on the item details page after checkout.

Hoopla content cannot be downloaded to a personal computer, but can be streamed.

How do I set up an account to watch online movies and TV?

Create an account with your library card number and email address at the Hoopla website. The username and password you create during the registration process can be used on the website and mobile app.

How much do downloadable videos cost to check out? How much are the late fees?

There is no charge for downloadable video titles. They are automatically returned at the end of the three-day loan period. You will never have an overdue fine for a downloadable video title.

How many downloadable video titles can I check out?

You can check out up to 6 titles from Hoopla every month across all content formats. Titles can be returned early, but this will not affect your checkout limit. Checkout limits automatically reset to 6 titles on the first day of each month.

How long can I keep downloadable video?

Downloadable movies and TV checkouts last for 3 days. At the end of the 3-day loan period, you may check the title out again.
