Most institutional streaming video licenses are for a fixed period of time, usually 1 or 3 years.
Sometimes we are not able to license films, documentaries, or clips, due to limits in availability or budget. Some videos that are available on consumer streaming platforms like Netflix or Amazon are not made available for institutional licensing.
Streaming video requests can take longer to process than other requests, so a few weeks or more of lead time is ideal.
At this time, we are focused on filling instructors' streaming video requests in support of courses.
