Kanopy have partnered with Telstra to provide free access to thousands of movies. 

Kanopy is free to users thanks to partnerships with libraries across Australia. Users simply need a library membership to access the catalogue of films. 

“The addition of Kanopy to our ever-growing content catalogue and suite of apps is just another reason why Tesltra TV is so popular with Australians, with over a million devices in market,” said Rebecca Haagsma, Director of Product Development and Innovation, Telstra.

“Kanopy’s selection of free, thought-provoking film, documentaries and TV series from around the world is an example of how institutions like libraries and media are adapting to the changing ways we all consume information today.” 

Queensland is the most recent public library to provide access to Kanopy, after other Australian public libraries in New South Wales, Victoria, and Western Australia launched earlier this year. Almost all universities in Australia have partnerships with Kanopy.

“Partnering with Telstra, the leading telco provider in Australia, means that even more Aussies are now able to watch thousands of thoughtful films for free, right from their living room with their Telstra TV,” said Olivia Humphrey, CEO of Kanopy.

“Kanopy’s core mission has always been to provide access to enriching content to viewers. Kanopy’s Telstra TV App and our partnership with libraries across Australia means people can stream a huge selection of amazing indies, documentaries, and classic films you can’t find anywhere else.” 

In addition to the Telstra TV app, Kanopy can be accessed from leading devices and platforms, including Chromecast, AppleTV, iOS and Android and can be viewed using a phone, tablet or computer. The service is also ad and commercial free.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
