Livingston Parish Library patrons now have free access to movies, music, television, and music videos through Freegal with a library card number.
Patrons can access thousands of feature films and television episodes from major content providers. Each cardholder can watch three different movies per week. Each movie selection has a 48-hour viewing period. During that 48-hour period, that selection can be watched multiple times. With Freegal’s easy-to-use website interface, there is no software to install and no waiting times. Movies can be played on virtually any device that has streaming capabilities.
Music enthusiasts can download free music, watch music videos and stream music from a collection of approximately 7 million songs, including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists. The collection is comprised of music from more than 28,000 labels with music originating from more than 80 countries. Each cardholder has access to three music downloads per week and three hours of streaming music every day. Music videos are considered premium content, so all video downloads will count as two weekly music selections. Music downloads can be played from any device that can play mp3 files, while video files are compatible with most devices that can play video content.
Both services also offer free apps for Apple and Android devices. The Freegal Movie app can be found at www.mylpl.info/movies. For the Freegal Music app, please visit the Apple App Store or the Google Play store.
