Kanopy does not provide the New Zealand classification ratings on individual titles. To check the NZ classification ratings for films offered by Kanopy go to the Office of Film and Literature's website to the Film and Video Labelling Body at http://www.fvlb.org.nz/nz. Documentaries are not included as they tend not to be classified.
Films can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the Kanopy app for iOS, Android, AppleTV or Chromecast. Set up an account then login into the app.
