Subscription based streaming services such as Netflix, etc. are for personal use only and are not licensed to institutions. These services have an end user license agreement, and do not allow for classroom or educational use. Netflix does have an exception to this, however.
Netflix does provide for educational screenings of some of its documentaries. To find out which titles are available, visit media.netflix.com and search for the title. Click on the film's details page and look for the GRANT OF PERMISSION FOR EDUCATIONAL SCREENINGS.
Here are some things to keep in mind when using Netflix:
- The documentary may only be accessed via the Netflix service, by a Netflix account holder. Netflix does not sell DVDs or provide other ways for you to show the film. (Oxford College Library does NOT have a Netflix account. Faculty will need to log in with their own credentials.)
- The screening must be non-profit and non-commercial. That means you cannot charge admission, or solicit donations, or accept advertising or commercial sponsorships in connection with the screening.
- Please don’t use Netflix’s logos in any promotion for the screening, or do anything else that indicates that the screening is “official” or endorsed by Netflix.
