This morning, we are proud to announce that streaming video is coming soon for our library and school partners. This new and exciting way to watch videos will be available later this year with thousands of popular new titles, in addition to the existing video collection previously only available through download.
ALA attendees can preview streaming video and the cross compatibility on virtually any computer or device with a modern browser by visiting the OverDrive booth (953). Much like the OverDrive Read technology, you will soon be able to enjoy a movie from the library right in your browser. With DVD and Blu-ray demand at its highest in libraries, OverDrive streaming video will enable users to access popular movies anytime, anywhere.
OverDrive Marketplace currently offers 15,000 video titles available to libraries and schools in genres such as children’s, instructional, documentaries, comedy and concert specials, and partners can expect many of those to be available in the new streaming format. OverDrive will continue to add thousands of popular feature film titles in the U.S. and Canada, representing a wide variety of genres including action/adventure, children, comedy, drama and music, among others.
More information about the streaming video catalog is coming soon so be sure to subscribe to the blog for the latest news and be sure to visit OverDrive in booth #953 all weekend at ALA!
