OverDrive, a digital media lending platform for libraries and schools, announced an agreement with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution to offer hundreds of streaming video titles to public and government library partners in the U.S. and Canada. This deal expands a growing collection of quality, in-demand streaming videos available through OverDrive.
With the addition of Warner Bros. films, libraries will be able to benefit from a transactional, pay-per-use lending model from OverDrive. This model eliminates the need to purchase titles in advance of their use and ensures that titles are available instantly to all patrons simultaneously. Libraries will soon be able to browse or search for Warner Bros. titles from the catalog in OverDrive Marketplace, and curate their collection to match the unique interests of their communities. As with other content and access models from OverDrive, libraries will set user lending policies for Warner Bros. movies to manage costs.
Library patrons across the U.S. and Canada will be able to use PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android Tablets or nearly any connected device to stream videos from their library.
