Streaming app Hoopla is bringing hundreds of VOD movies to library patrons of for free, with choices like Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” “Tracks” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” as well as TV shows such as “Marco Polo” and numerous childrens’ programs.
The service also offers music and ebooks. Libraries pay Hoopla a fee for each time a library patron streams a title, while the users can stream on any device, free of charge, for up to three days.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this story said that first-run VOD titles including Pierce Brosnan-Milla Jovovich actioner “Survivor” and “Welcome to Me,” starring Kristen Wiig, were available via Hoopla. They are no longer available through the service, which continues to stream older library titles.
