Once you have signed up, you can search for a particular title by using the BROWSE button or a type of show by using the GENRE button. If you see something that looks interesting, click on it. If you decide you want to watch, press the play button.
You have 5 Play credits per month. If you run out, don’t worry – just wait until the first of the month for your credits to renew!
NOTE 1: Click on the KIDS button to see what kind of great kids’ movies and series are available. As long as these are watched while in the KIDS section, they do not count against your monthly credits! NOTE 2: The “Great Courses” series also do not count against your Play credits, but you may only watch 2 of these series per month.
If you can’t finish a show or series in one sitting, don’t worry! When you want to resume watching, use the MY LIST button to see which shows you were watching, and how long you have before you have to spend another Play credit to continue watching.
If you have trouble, click on SUPPORT at the bottom of the page, or ask your friendly library staff member!
