The copyright exceptions relating specifically to educational establishments have widened, allowing more extensive use of materials in conjunction with educational licensing schemes. However, the exception only permits copying of material that is strictly necessary for genuine research or private study, so a film would have to be genuinely relevant to a course. Copying a whole work would not generally be considered 'fair dealing'.
General guidance is as follows:
Please note that personal subscriptions to video streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime do not permit class use. This is stated in the terms and conditions for such services. For example see clause 4.2 for Netflix and clause C for Amazon Prime.
The Box of Broadcasts service (BoB National) is licenced for streaming TV content on and off campus for educational use. Access is limited to the UK only.
Tip: sound recordings and music in particular are covered by copyright and permitted copying is very restricted. There are exceptions for comedy, caricature or pastiche.
