Your library card just got a lot more powerful: Hoopla just announced a deal with Paramount Pictures to add Paramount movies to their lineup.
“Through this new deal with Paramount, hoopla digital is adding a roster of iconic movies to the dynamic experience we offer to our library partners and their patrons. Content on hoopla, including this exciting lineup of films, can be enjoyed across multiple screens, from laptops to tablets and TVs—all with a library card,” said Jeff Jankowski, founder and owner of hoopla digital.
So what is Hoopla? Hoopla Digital teams up with local libraries to offer free streaming for members of more than 1,600 public library systems across North America. Public libraries are a great resource for cord cutters—not only for free DVD rentals but now also for streaming.

In addition, family-friendly movies such as The Nutty Professor, starring Eddie Murhpy, and The Wild Thornberrys Movie will further add to Hoopla Digital’s catalog of more than 600,000 movies, TV shows, music albums, eBooks, audiobooks and comics.
