Streaming Media Access

This Guide provides the various paths towards accessing streaming video and streaming audio/music for U of Regina Library users.

Try Your Public Library!

The Regina Public Library (RPL) provides access to many digital resources including some streaming media options including Kanopy and Hoopla for streaming video; Overdrive (Libby), and AudioBookCloud for eAudiobooks; and Hoopla and Naxos for streaming music (including World, Jazz, and Classical).

If you don't have access to the RPL's collection, you can register for a card.

Alternatively, try a Google search for the name of your home public library and "digital services" and you may have similar access with your home public library card!

Non-Library Streaming Services

If you want to access streaming media that the Library is not able to provide, there are numerous options available in Canada (other geographic regions will have different options).

This page includes resources for tracking down which service can provide the media you are seeking, and links to streaming services providing relatively stable collections of media that are available in Canada.

Finding Where a Movie or TV show Can Be Streamed

There are so many different streaming services with so much overlap between them, it can be overwhelming to figure out where you should check to find a particular piece of media. If you have already tried searching QuickFind for streaming media with no luck, you can also check commercially available streaming services.

Try starting your search with one of these tools to narrow down where you should be looking:
